I have updated my macro to convert HTML table into tab delimited text file.

I use this to extract tabular information to past into other applications e.g. Excel.

Web sites keep finding new ways to make this difficult. The latest has html with absolutely NO newlines or spaces outside tabs, but I can now handle this.

I use this macro in conjunction with a modified version of Christian's tab2fix for viewing the result in Vedit.
I removed the Detab_Block to keep tabs, and Wysiwyg Converter if I want to convert tabs.
This also gives me the option of adjusting columns with my TabRight.vdm
