You can do this, but you have to select either side of it to work. Copying sub-parts of tables doesn't, however, so re-purposing this.

I'm testing on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchester_British-Americans . I don't manage to copy/paste the table in Safari, but it seems to work in Opera. Results may vary though.

Will right-clicking on the table to copy it ever work?
