    It may be useful to have a feature where its possible to embed google sheets (or other things) into a post so it shows up within the post, rather than as a link or as code (as below).

    Useful when showing calcs etc


    ---------------

    Code:
    <iframe src="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1v_0rx63A8CGvB7ncW4XGdLBwmGZ5hvkJxBBH4cIRjQI/pubhtml?gid=0&amp;single=true&amp;widget=true&amp;range=A1:E5;headers=false"></iframe>
    --------------

    <iframe src="https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...amp;widget=true&amp;range=A1:E5;headers=false"></iframe>

    We explicitly do not allow HTML to be included in its raw form because that would open up so many security risks.

    However, I will see if there's a different way we can achieve this that will still be safe.

    You can save your file on Dropbox or Google drive then share the link. Almost same effect but no security issues.
