table issues using powercms

Hi all,
I am having issues with powercms and tables, I have a page which my client will update which uses tables to format his information, the easiest way to advise him to do this is to simply copy the pre-created table and paste it in again to add another blank table to insert his info so it all formats the same, however what should be simple isnt, in firefox, when selecting the table there is no copy function available either from a right click or the menu, if we try to use IE8 all the menus are screwed up by refusing to float to the front, an apparently known but not fixed issue.

As it is without being able to perform this simple copy and paste function for the tables the whole system becomes useless to the client.

If someone could advise on a simple workaround or fix for these issues it would be appreciated as it would not be acceptible to have to ask the client to use different browsers to perform different functions within the editor.

I did read somewhere that an update to powercms is on the cards which uses a different editor which is likely to overcome this issues, do we know when this will be released as these limitations are a serious problem with regard to it being suitable as a content management system.

Thanks in advance
