For one thing, that would mean that Zim needs to support tables! See:
I like the idea in general, however, from experience I usually want to
paste the _text_ (information) of webpages, not some designer's HTML.
Open Office drives me nuts when it tries to paste HTML. So if it is
made possible, please, make it optional.
