Yes! Although there is some slight difference between conversion to

coding those utilities, but it might be useful to keep that in mind.

You could store the formulas in HTML comments and therefore still pick 
up the full spreadsheet upon reading it later:

... <td> 45 <!-- = a1+a2 --> </td> ...

Or even use attributes, assuming that spreadsheets will ignore 
attributes they are unfamilar with (a fairly safe assumption):

... <td formula="a1+a2"> 45 </td> ...
