When replacing a variable with HTML containing a table, it never displays the table, just the text in the table as a block of text. I am testing using a clean install, latest trial copy version, on openSUSE using example code I found in your documentation, specifically:


$html = '<table border="1" style="border-collapse: collapse" width="400">
                    <td style="background-color: yellow">1_1</td>
                    <td rowspan="3" colspan="2">1_2</td>
                    <td>Some random text.</td>
                            <li>Two <b>and a half</b></li>

$docx->replaceVariableByHTML('CHUNK_2', 'inline', $html, array('isFile' => false, 'parseDivsAsPs' => true, 'downloadImages' => false));


The result in the docx document:

1_11_2Some random text.OneTwo and a half

Any ideas? The functionality is crucial, the client large, and I'm getting nervous... 8)
