Reply to: Convert <table> to <simpletable>

Can't think of a really easy way. Copy and paste would normally work with XMetaL Author (the base product) for tables, but the DITA customization (included with XMetaL Author Enterprise) overrides some of the built-in paste functionality and interferes with that in this case.

A script or a script + XSLT could probably be written (in theory) — not that I'm volunteering at this point, but it would be an interesting challenge to try. If I wasn't so busy I could probably do something fairly fast, but I'm swamped at the moment. Maybe one day soon (unless someone else beats me to it).
