New documents based on content type in browser

I created a new doc lib using spreadsheet as it's class rather than word doc. I replaced the default excel template file with one that I uploaded. When someone chooses file/new document from the ribbon, it opens the correct new custom template, but it will not do that in the browser, it has to do it in the client. However, the file can be edited in the browser after created in client and then saved to SharePoint. Is there any way possible for users to create a new excel doc with this template in the browser so that everyone doesn't have to have excel in order to create new docs using the library template? I thought that was the purposes of excel services, and as far as I can tell I have those enabled if I can ever see the doc in the browser at all.
