XF 1.5 BB Code tables after importing from vBulletin

I just did a test vBulletin to Xenforo import which seemed to go well for the most part. The major issue I have found is that BB Code tables don't display in Xenforo as they did in vBulletin. I have one guy who has meticulously created tables in his posts for a couple of years and his contributions have been a great help to the community. His tables look like this in vB:

After my test import they look like this:

Is there any way I can repair this guys tables by doing search and replaces on the database? I would hate for two years of hard work to go down the drain.

Any help is very much appreciated. :)

The issue is that we don't have a table BB code (or set of BB codes). To make the tables work, you'd likely need a custom table tag. (Given the complexity of this, it would likely need to be from an add-on.)

Thanks Mike. The simple solution would appear to be to create screenshots all of the tables in his posts and then just edit his posts and add them as images.
