Excel embedding in the Live Rankings

I would like to request a "delicacy" that may ensure the possibility of users seeing my live rankings in a more user friendly format, enabling them to actually find players, not see only images.

I want to embed an Excel spreadsheet into posts, I know it's possible on some sites, I don't know if here, but please take this into consideration. The code skydrive generates for embedding this particular spreadsheet is this one:

<iframe src="https://skydrive.live.com/embed?cid=D7BCBFA5FDF2F128&resid=D7BCBFA5FDF2F128% 211797&authkey=APinbxDn_mfWvHc&em=2" width="402" height="346" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe>

And this is the link to that spreadsheet:

Re: Excel embedding in the Live Rankings

Can you please temporarily allow html into the Live Rankings post so I can test if this embedding works?

Re: Excel embedding in the Live Rankings

Unfortunately, the request to embed excel sheets cannot be done because we would have to allow html code - which we can't do.

The alternatives available would be adding excel as an attachment (I would have to add support) or I could create a custom BB code to allow Google Docs spreadsheets.

Let me know.

Re: Excel embedding in the Live Rankings

I don't really wanna switch to Google Docs. Skydrive is what does the thing for me right now. If you cannot create a custom BB code for allowing that small code I posted in the original post, that's about it.

Thanks anyway, I will post the link to have this available at least one click away, I'm sure those who follow the live rankings will be thankful for at least that.
