IncludeUpload will give you better support for the HTML version
of the spreadsheet, I think.

All you need to do is upload the spreadsheet HTML as an attachment (the
Attach: markup) and then use the (:includuplode :) markup to display the
HTML inside the wiki.  Then when you update the spreadsheet (in your
spreadsheet program), then update the upload with the HTML version.


I don't think anyone has written a recipe for converting an actual
spreadsheet file to HTML within PmWiki; I expect the spreadsheet
software itself would do a better job of it.
