Tips exporting Excel files (XLS) to HTML.
Yesterday I faced the same problem, I have to include a Excel table into a HTML file for a client and have to clean all the useless code generated by MS Office. Solution? Well have you ever tried OpenOffice? If you haven't now you have a reason to do it. The code generated by OpenOffice is very clean compared to MS Office. I only have to clean some TD tags removing some attributes like align or width.
In about 2 minutes I got a clean table just to apply the style I wanted. With a MS Office HTML you will expend almost 10-15 minutes cleaning the code if the file isn't too large.
