Also, when I open with the html format module, lots of errors scroll
about namespace errors. It is an html file with excel xml markup eg:


  <td class=xl29 width=71

x:num flags an error

I really think that x:num is not acceptable in a td tag in any version
of html. 

I agree it is not html, but it is I assume covered in the
xmlns:x="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:excel" namespace. (This I do
not expect to be supported by the html module, except by specific design
of course)

It sounds like this needs to be treated as a special XL specific
format, probably in the xls plugin which does have a probe routine.
We can have a look during 1.7.  We need to make up std test file
with things like
     - formating
      : alignments
      : borders
      : font/back/pattern colours
     - merged cells
     - array formulas

Here is a hand edited sample.  The image might be a bit screwy, but
commendably, gnumeric elects not to load images from remote urls, so I
imagine this would be the ? collage graphic in gnumeric anyway.
