    Hi,
    This is inquiry for improving copy/paste function from Office table cell.
    As far as I know XMetaL supports table cell copy/paste function from Microsoft Office products. Usually it works well. However if the copy source cells contain spanning, it does not exactly converted. Please refer to below:

    [/code]

    You can see that oXygen exactly converts @morerows/@namest/@nameend attributes. But it is not supported in XMetaL at all.
    In legacy data to XML migration this function is very important.
    Is it feasible to improve this copy/paste function in XMetaL?

    Regards,
