Have you tried *Tools - Options - Load/Save - HTML Compatibility

Thank you, Piet.

So do I need to install LO in order to correct this? Or, should I implement the following 
twelve steps?

1) use my eMail client to copy these frequent reports to my computer from Gmail

2) run a script or program to:

2.1) open that file

2.2) strip out everything before <html and after /html>

2.3) unpack the Quoted-Printable encoding (preserving the character set specification somehow)

2.4) save the file

3) switch to Calc

3.1) insert a temporary sheet from the file

3.2) select all data from that sheet

3.3) switch to the sheet where the data belongs

3.4) paste in the appropriate location

3.5) delete the temporary sheet

I think all those steps are doable. Per your suggestions, step 3.1 could be "open the HTML file in LO," step 3.3 
would be "switch to the main document," and step 3.5 would be "close the source (temporary) spreadsheet 
without saving it. As I see it step 2.3 is the most complex.
