Also just forcing a download using html tables and content-type 
application/excel can work with excel and openoffice-calc. The <td>'s 
are the columns.  This is not as full featured and robust as the PEAR 
package, but does seem to work for simple, single sheet spreadsheets. 
And it's fast to code if you already have the html tables ready (:
