Convert Excel XML to HTML with XSLT

I have a small spreadsheet that I would like to publish on out Intranet and make changes to it every now and then.  Here is the XML source:

<?xml version="1.0"?>

Here is the XSL I am using to process it (not working so far):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">
      <xsl:output method="html"/>
      <xsl:template match="/">
      <html>
            <head>
                  <title>Software Versions</title>
            </head>
      <body>

Versions: <br/>
      <xsl:for-each select="Workbook/Worksheet/Table/Row/Cell">
            <xsl:value-of select="Data" />
            <br/>
      </xsl:for-each>
      <br/>
-- end --
</body>
      </html>

</xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Replace the Workbook start tag as follows

<Workbook xmlns="" xmlns:o="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" xmlns:x="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:excel" xmlns:ss="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:spreadsheet" xmlns:html="http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40">

It worked with IE 6.0

Hope it helps.

this should work for you, copy and paste over your current XSL and then apply to your existing Excel XML file, I tested it on the posted data above:

XSL : ms_excel.xsl
-----------------------------------------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" xmlns:ericsDev="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:spreadsheet" version="1.0">
