I'm importing data from my personal gnucash-based accounting
system into a general spreadsheet setup to calculate tax-related

The manual copy & paste from gnucash-reports works in a way,
although its error-prone, and takes much time.

Forgive my dumbness here, but how do i export it as an HTML-file?
Ive tried "Export Accounts" from file-menu, and it leaves some
kind of **ML-type file (starting with an <xml>-tag), but mozilla
does not make any sense of it, neither does gnumeric.
Where do i get a quick description on how to write reports?
