Instead of trying to go through the HTML Import feature, which is
going to cause a lot of work in cleanup, why not start again at the
Excel source. Freeway has really robust CSV import, and Excel makes
If you have a single Excel sheet that represents the content of a
single Zip code, then strip down that sheet to only the columns you
need to show, and save it as CSV.
In Freeway, draw a 1 row X N columns (where N is the number of
columns you have in your CSV table).
Click inside the first cell of the table so you get a flashing text
cursor, and choose File: Import Text (Apple-E) from the main menu.
Navigate to the CSV file you created in Excel and change the Import
picker from Text/RTF to Comma-delimited. Press Okay, and watch in
slack-jawed amazement as Freeway makes a table to fit your data. It
will grow the table and the page down to the number of rows needed by
your input data.
Once you grasp this technique, you will be amazed at how quickly you
can re-make all of those pages as native Freeway content.
And with that many pages, I would also recommend you think about
putting the content in a database somewhere so you won’t have to
manage it in static files again. One template page could stand in for
all of the Zip codes, and all that you would need to do is pass the
Zip code to it as a variable: detail.php?zip=19027.

The reason for doing this is because each of the 150 pages is a
list of addresses within a certain zip code, which will appear in
an iFrame when that particular zip code is selected from a list.
See my post on lists here:
The .htm files were created from a Microsoft Excel sheet that
listed all of the zip codes and addresses.
