Is it possible to embed a google spreadsheet into a webpage and keep all the calculations still intact?

For example: I'd like to embed a calculator I have into a webpage, and allow the user to still interact with the cells. Currently it appears that the page becomes static when you embed it.

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

This is not possible without having something like google docs run on your web server. The reason that calculations are dynamic is because google docs is there to evaluate it. If it is not there, no evaluation.

You might want to consider writing custom javascript code that can do some functions, and just let users modify those.
