Just now I found that under OO2 and scribus 1.3.3cvs, the following
method worked flawlessly.
1. Create a table with text inside within Calc
2. Select a range desired and copy paste it into a newly created Draw
3. Export it as an eps file from Draw
4. Start Scribus and create a new page, then import the eps exported
I could see that table structrue, text formatting and visual color are all
preserved within Scribus.
