Some time ago I wrote an AppleScript which parses the clipboard to  
insert the required & and \\ into a table data copied from Excel. It  
only works for the rows. So you have to write the \tabular header for  
yourself. If anyone is interested, I can see if I can find it.  
Currently I use a ruby script to do this converting.
