    I have a client who is using this feature in order to publish an online spreadsheet by uploading it through a CMT that we have provided for him.

    The problem...

    He wants to include images in the spreadsheet.

    These images already reside on the remote server, so...

    I'm looking for a way to indicate, from within an excel document, for the HTML converter to bypass a certain portion of text or rather, to assume that the text is ALREADY html and not to convert it into plain text.

    I want my client to be able to type in the absolute path to the image in the excel file and after the conversion, the html file should be able to reference the image on the remote server.

    Is this possible?

    Has anyone been up against this before?

    Any insight would be much appreciated.

    I think you might have this post in the wrong area of the forum.

    But, even though I'm a moderator, I'm not sure where to move it.

    Wait a while and see if anyone can answer your question.
    Unfortunately, this one is beyond my experience.

    I'd look at the html code for a cell, and then try throwing different references to the image in there. Trial and error basically.

    The problem is deeper than that.

    Any "<" or ">" in the excel file is encoded as "&lt;" or "#&quot;" in the htm file resulting in ill-formed xhtml tags.

    This is probably a question for an excel programming forum.

    If I find a solution I'll post it in case some unfortunate designer encounters this in the future.
