Best way to import KML with attributes

Hello, I have a point KML which has attributes in it, with each placemark's attributes in a table in html (tr/td etc). What's the best way I can get the attribute data into the resulting shapefile?

I've tried Data Interoperability/Quick Import and just adding it from the KML and those both give me only locations. The KML to Shp tool by Jason Parent only gives me one line of the attributes, not what I need. Is there some way I need to reformat the KML? Or some other tool that would work, like XTools?
