Often you enter sites where tables are (mis-)used for the layout of the page 
and puts loads of menu items and banners around the article you have interest
in. When printing a such dokument you often waste several sheets of paper on
having a menubar printed on paper. Far from every site have decent styles for
priting even in these days.

Wouldn't it be nice if you could view a single table cell, just like yo can with
a frame by selecting "This Frame -> View only this frame" ?

Sure it raises some questions regarding nested tables, whether you should with
the whole nested table or one cell within the nested table. Personally, I guess
I would be fine with any of them and learn where to put the pointer before
viewing a cell.

Would it be possble?

Will commercial sites freak out when their banners are not printed on paper?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
For printing, just select the cell and print the selection....

For the others, it's a matter of UI, not layout (you can hook up a new document
containing just that cell using ranges).
