I want to edit a web document that I see open in my browser. What can I do? I have discovered that I can use the viewer, like this: https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw4.pdf
In the viewer, there is an option to move the document to the Google Drive and, finally, convert to a Google Document. But, it shows garbage when I reference any HTML page instead of pdf.
Why I can only upload a file from my hard disk but not feed URL references to Google Docs?
Yes, I can copy-paste the contents of the web page into the new Google Document. But, google could do it itself. I ask because copy-pasting takes forever (when it comes to document-embedded images). I believe that URL-based import could accomplish it more efficiently.
I have created a similar question for SkyDrive.
