For my needs, HTTX strips tables just fine - all I need is the contents; I
don't care about its final format. The stripped format depends upon the
author's talents (or lack thereof). Sometimes the stripped format clearly
resembles the original table; sometimes its a jumbled mess. So long as the
format of each page is at least somewhat consistent, I can find what I want.
Parsing does all of the hard work.
Normally, non-text elements (HTML format controls) are of no value to me and
are fully eliminated.
