Excel recognizes html. An html table passed to Excel will be rendered
as a spreadsheet.

Have you tried the sample from my previous message? I put it into my
template directory, invoked it from IE, and Excel opened with the
spreadsheet you would expect to see.

May I ask how you manage to disable the page assembler to stuff a
different
content type in the response ?

I don't see how you can send back something else correct since the
page
assembler will add html tags around your data...unless I missed
something I
don't see how we can do this without creating our own VelocityPage
that
implements a different strategy for assembling a page.
