What is the best Excel to HTML converter? I've found Tableizer at http://tableizer.journalistopia.com/, it's free and it's a web app. But I'm wondering if there are other convenient solutions.
More generally, what is the best tool for format conversion (that can do ALL conversions without destroying the original format, such as changing a date into a number or worse, text format)?

Sometimes in an educational process, simplifying and simply wrong assumptions are made to solve complex time series.…

When you do a book search on Amazon using keywords, in the search result page you see 16 results. If you've bought one (or more) of these books, it still shows up on the search result page.

Sounds to me like an obvious, simple optimization trick. Maybe Amazon's statisticians use very complex models that change…Continue
