And you beliebve *anything* exporting HTML will produce proper HTML? No.
Proper HTML is done by hand. Even Dreamweaevr or however all the tools are
called are not producing well-formed HTML.

Then you should have done your table in a way this doesn't hapen
or format it so that the scenario doesn't happen or use a website
design where it doesn't happen. Don't expect HTML export knowing what you
will use it in it can't. And HTML doesn't have "automatic colors" anyway.

Of course not. The text is in one cell. That it just overflows that cell
is so, but how should Calc know? it's text *inside that cell*. If you don't
proper formatting in your sheet, don't blame others for that,

Your point from the export is? Honestly, I don't see this as a "normal" bug.
(I actually don't see this as a bug per se)
