If you have Excel on the client (and probably if you are running the
IE browser on the client), you can cause Excel to open from a page.
You are on the right track with setting the content type. Put this in
a template and try it.

$data.setContentType( "application/vnd.ms-excel" )
<table>
  <tr>
    <td>text1</td>
    <td>1</td>
  </tr>
  <tr>
    <td>text2</td>
    <td>2</td>
  </tr>
</table>

It is even possible to put special strings in the TD tags to use Excel
formatting and Excel formulas in the resulting spreadsheet. Let me
know if you want more information.
