How to workaround problems embedding MS-Office web apps into WordPress.com

  1. UPDATE: this is becoming part of a series, it seems.
  2. SkyDrive and WordPress integration used to work much better, but not anymore?
  3. SkyDrive offers embed code with unescaped &, but you need to replace by & for  WordPress.com to accept the embed.
  4. SkyDrive offers embedding a range, but WordPress fails to display it (e.g. Item=’Sheet1′!A1%3AE10 – maybe b/o the parenthesis?);  tables do still display (e.g. Item=Table1).
  5. Wait, there is more: one or both of the following prevent display also:  &ActiveCell=’Sheet1′!C3&wdHideHeaders=True
  6. A working example for the record (to be enclosed between []):
    office width="700" height="443" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" 
    src="https://skydrive.live.com/embed?cid=4FA3329905D7E1CE&resid=4FA3329905D7E1CE%2143384
    &authkey=AGmGlsvpKj5r0pU&em=2&Item=Table1&wdHideGridlines=True"
