Thanks for the tip. For the record, 'herbert' comes with OLE::Storage.
It doesn't even use Spreadsheet::ParseExcel! (In fact, it turns out
that Spreadsheet::ParseExcel is based on herbert).

It looks like converting the Sheet_to_HTML() function in herbert to use
Spreadsheet::ParseExcel is still an open problem. I'd guess this would
be a good idea...
