this, see the documentation string of the variable
@code{org-archive-location}. If you are also using the Org-mode
agenda, archiving to a different file is a good way to keep archived
trees from contributing agenda items.

If you call @code{fill-paragraph} (bound to @kbd{M-q}) in a table, the
filling is correctly disabled. However, if some text directly
(without an empty line in between) preceeds or follws a table, calling
@code{fill-paragraph} in that text will also fill the table like
normal text. Also, @code{fill-region} does bypass the
@code{fill-paragraph} code and will fill tables like normal text.
