It’s been a while… Welcome Windows Live Embedding!
This has been a long time coming. But I finally have something new for you guys. It has been all over the news/twitter/blogs by now, but one of the new features we added is the ability to embed Excel workbooks in your blogs/sites. There’s a pretty straightforward explanation about this here:
