Strip tables during conversion?

I have an eBook that I'm in the process of converting after OCR. Abby FineReader packages each of the pages up in table/td/tr tags so it can position text on the pages. Is there an automated way to ask Calibre to strip these during conversion?

Thanks! I'll give it a try on my next scan. I've been using a regex which does an OK job, but is prone to mis-typing.
