you cannot do that with standard javascript ... but in case you want to have an IE only solution you could search for jscript-code that contains something like:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. new ActiveXObject("Excel.Application");

would you be against coping and pasteing the spreadsheet into a text-box?

it is then very simply to turn the text into a meaningful javascript 2d array.

also, saving it as a ".csv" file would make it very simple to open via ajax into your script. if that sounds workable for you, i can post some examples.
