    Pasting table from Excel and table tags descriptions

    1. We are having an issue with pasting a table from Excel 2010. If we are using IE 9 and copy a table in from Excel, the following code is copied over within the table tag:

    1. <colgroup>  
    2.     <col span="2" style="background-color:red">  
    3.     <col style="background-color:yellow">  
    4.   </colgroup>  
    The table is inserted however in the design view the table is not visible. If we click on the preview button, it is visible. If we use a prior version of IE or IE 9 compatibilty view, it is displayed. If we use another browser, it is visible. Is there a way to remove those tags during the html clean up process?

     

    2. When editing the table rows and cells, the description for rows (tr) and cells (td) for non-developer users is cryptic. As developers, we know what tr and td stand for however other users do not. Is there a way to change the description?

     

    Thank you
