i stick row and column data from a data base in html format using jsp and wrap the html code with microSofts xml. This allows the user to have an option to save the page as an Excel spreaSheet in IE or just save the file as a .xls using netscape.
To get the xml just save a file as html in Excel and cut n paste the parts that make sense.
