I'd like to add that list export is still kinda sucky (Bugs 1956 &
3375) - a 3rd rewrite has been on my TODO list for quite some time.
There's a meta bug (Bug 4415) which covers [X]HTML import/export issues.
Other interesting HTML-related bugs: 3472, 3747, 4213, 4355, 4525, 4775.
All of this is a little much for a single POW, but I think Martin's
emphasis is on round-trip XHTML table import/export.
Question: Are custom clip-board types supported? XHTML is basically a
document structure and the copy&paste of a single table is encumbered
by the document superstructure, i.e.:
<!DOCTYPE html "... >
<html xmlns="... >
<!-- and finally --><table>
and I'm often tempted just to prune the peripheral elements, i.e.:
<!DOCTYPE table "... >
<table xmlns="... >
- but it maybe it's not worth the effort?
After all, what does gnumeric do when faced when a whole document? Or
does it assume that the document contains a single table?
ps. I myself have not abandoned work towards round-trip XHTML
import/export but I'm working on a completely new mechanism and only
the gods know when it'll be working. If someone wants to add
table-import capability to the current importer that would be very cool
