Take, for example, this page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_file_comparison_tools

It's typical of most Wikipedia comparison pages, with the information split across multiple individual tables - if I want to compare GPL tools, it's not enough to sort the first table by license - it doesn't affect the others.

I want to have a single table so I can sort/filter/compare more easily.

Is anyone aware of an existing tool that does this?

I made a little script for you that will do just this. You currently have to paste the html for the tables in question into the HTML window, but after you do that just hit Run and you will see the combined tables. If you would like something more advanced, please let me know.
