Abstract: A space $X$ Borel multiplies with a space $Y$ if each Borel set of $X\times Y$ is a member of the $\sigma $-algebra in $X\times Y$ generated by Borel rectangles. We show that a regular space $X$ Borel multiplies with every regular space if and only if $X$ has a countable network. We give an example of a Hausdorff space with a countable network which fails to Borel multiply with any non-separable metric space. In passing, we obtain a characterization of those spaces which Borel multiply with the space of countable ordinals, and an internal necessary and sufficient condition for $X$ to Borel multiply with every metric space.
