Javascript or formulas for spreadsheets and web documents

I am working on a format for some technical/product data sheets and thought how can I make my product lierature the point of reference for comparison.
It occured to me that having active conversion boxes resident on my web-based product data sheets would make my pages a utility.

Obviously something like this would have to be a subscriber service, with an innocuous courtesy statement "results provided by Convert-Me.Com"
For an upgrade you could supply "drop-in" spreadsheet formulas for excel
and javascript for other apps.

A service like this might also make my pages useful to my end user as I could have my product data covert consumption requirements to number of units or vice versa. And cycle between metric and US.

Most of this I can probably do myself in excel and drop into an Acrobat pdf but having an online source for drag and drop conversions would be cool and very handy.

You are not exactly my homepage but you are in my favorites and there is a shortcut on my desktop. Why hasn't Google bought you yet?
