Kupu has now included a cleanup filter that makes sure that tables don't  
end up inside <p> tags. This is present in Kupu trunk, which means that  
the 1.4 release will have it included (currently in beta). If you want to  
test it, use the current SVN version of Kupu:

svn co https://codespeak.net/svn/kupu/trunk/kupu
