As a practical matter, I would point folks of that sort at OpenOffice (which
has a pretty decent save-to-HTML or PDF), Google Docs, or the like.  Hand
coding HTML (especially tables) is incredibly tedious, and not an efficient
use of their time.  (Incidentally, my long-ago college degree is in Physics,
not software.)

If hand-coding HTML makes little sense for non-software folk now, by the
time any change to HTML is widely adopted (likely several years from now),
the need will be even less.
