This answer does not add any new information than what the other answers already give.

comment With ggplot2, how can you create a box around a tick label?
The only approach I can think of is to create the plot and to call ggplot_build and ggplot_gtable manually to get the grid version of the plot and then to manually edit the appropriate grobs.

comment Drawing a box around a table and its associated caption
Your answer got me to an understanding of the distinction between table box and table wrapper box. I could not get your answer to work for me in my more complicated application, but I awarded you the bounty based on the detailed "why".

@DRD That is good to know.

comment Drawing a box around a table and its associated caption
Thank you for pointing out the outline property; I had not heard of that before. However, when I try your example, the outline only goes around the table proper, not around the table and caption. When the display property is changed, the outline also follows the border (both go around the same content).

comment Comparison of Kaplan-Meier curves across ordered groups
I see the same results you are now reporting here. I do not know why the results are different now, but that would be something to bring up with the package maintainer.
