Anybody do that?

The text is from a command-line utility. 297 paragraphs... this week.
I paste those into a Flare topic. They're all <p> </p>.

How to instantly make them become a single-column 297-row table?

Or, how to create a 297-row table and paste the 297 paragraphs
all at once, so they each fall into a separate cell/row?
Copying the paras into the buffer, then selecting the table
and pasting ... doesn't have that result (though it would/does
in a word processor).

It's easy enough in Word or OOo, but I want to avoid importing
formatted stuff from another app into Help - it always comes
back to haunt me somehow.
