Hello HTMLNumberImport i-Team,

I read the new spec 'HTML Numbers Import to Calc' and rate the describe UI as
incosistent to the already existing features CSV-Import and the Writer 'Text to
Table' Function.
The main difference is that the user selects the import/conversion options for
.csv or for Writer-TextToTable conversion for each imported/converted table,
while this new option would be an application wide setting.
In my opinion it's a very special case, that a user ONLY imports tables of the
same locale setting.
Furthermore the default is different to the .csv import. The .csv import is
preset to the users locale and can be switch manually to 'US English'.

I would suggest to respecify the feature in the following way:
-A similar import/conversion dialog for HTML import, .csv import and TextToTable
-A number locale setting makes sense for all of this

Hope this helps OOo to a cleaner UI...

Regards Jörg Wartenberg
