Major Bummer on the latest upgrade 3.5.5. 

Prior to upgrading I could copy a multi-column of html page data and paste it into MS Office v.X Excel for the Mac. Excel would parse the data in the same multi columns.

Now Excel states "Microsoft Excel cannot paste the data." 
Word Accepts the data.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Edit copy or Command C for any web page of multi-column data
2.Edit Paste or Command V into Excel
3. Works in Word with no problem
Actual Results:  
Error box pops up and says "Microsoft Excel cannot paste the data."

Expected Results:  
Data to paste into the same data structure as seen on the website.
