Ah, whoops. That would be because I had a bug in the code (that's why
I commented that it was untested). Sorry about that! Here's a fixed
lines = $GEDIT_SELECTED_TEXT.split("\n");
output = '<table\>\n';
for line in lines:
output += '<tr\>';
columns = line.split("\t");
for item in columns:
output += '<td colspan="' + str(4-len(columns)) +
'"\>' + item + '</td\> '
output += '</tr\>\n';
output += '</table\>';
Note that it's a single line:
output += '<td colspan="' + str(4-len(columns)) + '"\>' + item + '</td\> '
If your newsreader (or my poster) wraps it, you'll need to unwrap that
line, otherwise you'll get an IndentError.
That version should work.
