I receive a lot of tables in xls or word format. Horrible things. I load them 
into OO.org and export as high res pdf (press level in oo.org 1.1.x) and 
import into Scribus image frames. Works perfectly. You will need to tell 
Scribus where your ghostscript is though in preferences.

I havent had much of a play with OO.org 2.0 betas, but what I have seen is the 
press (1200 dpi) pdf export option has gone for some reason. Anyone able to 
point that one out to me?
