Subject: Tip: How to copy&paste a table from Firefox to Org

Hi all,

posting in case this is useful to someone else:

I just figured out how to copy & paste tabular data from Firefox to an
Org buffer (in my case: a train schedule from www.bahn.de).

- Select data in Firefox
- Paste into Org, select it as the region
- M-x replace-regexp  C-i \ | ^  | 
	
  C-i inserts a tab character (you can also use C-q  instead).
  We replace each beginning of a line and each tab character with "|".

- Place the cursor on the table and press C-c C-c to align it
