First attempt to read HTML into DF

I have vendors that send me reports in XLSX format. I easily convert them into data frames and write them to a csv for import into a database. However, one of them starting sending an HTML file with an xls ending. Using the pandas read_html I can read it into a list. This needs to be converting into a data frame. The list output looks very strange. I have no idea how to tackle it. I have the html fir one row shown below.

    <style type="text/css">
        br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}
        .formattext { mso-number-format:\@;}
        .formatdate { mso-number-format:"d MMM yy"; text-align: right;}
        .formatdatetime { mso-number-format:"d MMM yy HH:mm"; text-align: right;}
