    That's hard to say. Are you using Excel 2000 or another release?

   That's an issue with the HTMLSerializer, which, I presume, is a part of Cocoon. If my
   presumtion is correct, then you'll need to post the question on the Cocoon mailing

   What browser will be able to interpret <x:ExcelWorksheet>? In other words, if you put
   <x:ExcelWorksheet> into your HTML, what do you expect a browser to do with it? It
   isn't a tag in the HTML world.

How about this, could you produce HTML for the browser, and insert a link pointing to a normal, binary Excel file for your users to download? This would sidestep all the strangeness you are dealing with.
