Embedded web applications such as you mention are the motivation for
the WAI-ARIA markup under development.


In particular, for a spreadsheet, you would want to use the 'grid' role.


WAI-ARIA is designed to give device-independent activation of

interoperating with accessibility API interfaces that Assistive 
Technologies use to
afford this access to installed applications.
