Table in node becomes plain text

    Since RC3 (as far as I can remember) I do continously encounter this problem:
    Tables in rich text nodes become plain text after saving-closing and reopening the file. The tables are made externally in a simple html editor and they become something like this:

        <table style="border: none" cellpadding="0" class="msotablegrid" border="1" cellspacing="0">
            <td style="padding-left: 5.4pt; border: 1.0pt; background-repeat: repeat; padding-top: 0cm; padding-right: 5.4pt; background-image: null; width: 126.35pt; background-position: null; padding-bottom: 0cm; background-attachment: scroll; background-color: #F2F2F2" width="200" valign="top">

    It is quite a random symptom, it works for a while after recreating the same table - then suddenly it is gone again.

    Should I avoid using external html editors (the built in editor is so short on functions :(

    Any ideas?

    do you use an external HTML editor (not SimplyHTML but another)?
    Then, if this editor doesn't creates valid XML, the content is stored differently. But, normally, you should see a lot of < and > in the normal output then.

    Strange, Chris
