Save as document that can open in msword or openoffice

There is an RTF writer for Ruby. YOu would have to program it
yourself, but it looks fairly easy.

You can give a URL to the MS-Word open prompt (never tried it with OO, but might work, too).

You can also change the content-type of the page (on the server) and the browser will hand it off to another application.

Content-type:application/vnd.ms-excel

(since you said tables, I'm thinking it's spreadsheet-like data)
