#187854 - Applet?
Responding to: Joseph Hebert's previous message
Note that Java can be used to create an applet. But this have issues - like need for JVM etc.

Javascript, on the other hand, isn't creating any applet. The scripting gets integrated with the actual page instead of being a program that owns a rectangle of the page.

There exists word editors, paint programs etc written in Javascript, so there are very small reasons to go all the way to creating any applet that the user must accept.

Note that having the Excel spreadsheet for download requires the visitor to have access to a program that can use that Excel spreadsheet. So if the user doesn't have the M$ Office package, they need to consider one of the alternatives, like Openoffice. A javascripted page just requires that the user have a web browser with javascript enabled.
