You can't have table cell contents in wiki markup that is multiple

As HTML is much more powerful than wiki markup, it is simply not
possible to convert arbitrary html to wiki.

BTW, moin's gui editor converter also has that problem: it gets html/xml
as input and has to output wiki markup. As long as the input is more or
less created from moin, that works mostly ok. But if some user has the
bad idea to copy and paste arbitrary stuff into the gui editor, it can
fail rather easily.
