    What is the HTML code? Paste it here between backticks so it will display properly. Backticks are usually on the same key as the ~. So backtick, code, backtick.

    Also; as far as I know tables will display (if they’re narrower than your column) but spreadsheets will not. Different code.

    <iframe width='500' height='300' frameborder='0' src='http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=pTKModt0-GzqXk5z_E88vVg&output=html&widget=true'></iframe>

    Ok, clearly I’m technically challenged because I have no idea what most of what you said in your response actually means. :-)

    That is an iframe, and iframes are not allowed at wordpress.com due to security concerns. Neither are forms, javascript or flash. I do not know of anyway to display google docs with the exception of doing a screen capture of the spreadsheet and saving it as a PNG or GIF, or possibly making a PDF out of it that people can then open in their browser or in Adobe Reader.
