We need to know the values for rulethickness and offset, so let's define them:

\bTABLE[frame=on, rulethickness=0.5pt, offset=0.1em]

>   \bTD[frame=off,rightframe=on,rulethickness=1mm] abc \eTD

Now, it gets ugly:

    offset=\dimexpr 0.1em + 0.5pt - 1mm \relax, roffset=0.1em] abc \eTD

2 options:

- The cow gets smaller: \externalfigure[cow][width=\localhsize]
  (does not work, I don't know why...)

- The table cells get bigger. You have to define the width. If you want to
  span the cow 50%/50%, then

I wonder, why there is no such problem with the height... ?
