run a query in iBis and save the frame with the issue list to file (in my case
with Mozilla 1.7). Load the html file with SO Writer. Try to remove a single

sample file on request but I don't wanna attach my intray here.

table disappears, this cannot be the desired behavior. Removing the complete
table headers and footers (which may contain valuable information) to be able to
get a working table is not adequate.
