Spreadsheets as a web page content editor

If you want to include information on a website and want the potentially (likely) non-technical owners of the website to be able to edit it themselves - what can you use? How about a spreadsheet? Michael, of the Experiments in Website Design blog, posted a simple example of this, where he used a spreadsheet to simply present a baseball league schedule in a form where the administrators of the league can now own their content without relying on him to change the site... They just log on to Google Docs, change the spreadsheet (data, of course, but even formatting) and push the 'publish' button...
