 Phillip,

VisAD provides the necessary functions for your spreadsheet.
I don't know if there are other systems that would do it better.
It is true that VisAD provides lots of functions you don't need,
and like any rich-functionality system it can be difficult to
master. Your best bet is to dig into it a bit, as well as digging
into other candidate systems, and determine which you prefer.

  Dear Bill,

  thanks for your prompt reply.

  What I'm looking to create is something like a standard number-based
  spreadsheet with added functions for direct manipulation, image
  content in cells, and some data visualization - but that is not the
  major function.

  Do you think VisAD is a good choice for doing this? the example
  applications seem to stress on data visualization.
