Paste Table: MS IE for MS Excel

Have you ever tried to paste a table on a web page into an Excel sheet? If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser, everything plays along nicely, but when you use Firefox instead you end up with a mess of data splashed against your worksheet in Excel.

On MacOS X, however, there are reports that Firefox is able to paste data into Excel while Safari is not.

I guess we should just post everything in XML to work across all combinations of browsers, spreadsheets and operating systems :-(
