Hey all,

Can anybody recommend a PHP class that allows me to export to the Microsoft
Excel .XLS file format? Requirement: I need to be able to format contents
(in particular I need to be able to make items bold)

I've found lots of classes that allow me to output unformatted data to
Excel, but the only one that could output bold items uses a PEAR module.
Unfortunately, my client's server does not have the PEAR extension to PHP
installed, and server admins have informed me that installing it is not an

I could use CSV output, but AFAIK that format does not support formatting...

Any ideas?
