You have to do that using the contenttype, unfortunately you cannot set that from the html's point of view. Can you use a serverside language like asp?

if so, it is rather easy. just add the following code before you write anything else out:
response.contenttype="application/vnd.ms-excel"

IE 6 has an option under the right-click menu saying
Export to Microsoft Excel.

Maybe you can try that out.

Programatically one would export to Excel only if the data in the HTML file is in a spread-sheet format.But the same also contains HTML tags.

What is the nature of the data you need to export ?

Your data will not be in a spreadsheet format when simply exporting directly..

Have you tried the IE 6 feature of exporting to excel.

If that doesnt work,you may have to parse your HTML file,select each value required from <TD>'s and enter them in specific cells in the Excel sheet

This question has been abandoned. I will make a recommendation to the moderators on its resolution in a week or so. I appreciate any comments that would help me to make a recommendation.
 
In the absence of responses, I may recommend DELETE unless it is clear to me that it has value as a PAQ. Silence = you don't care
