The JIT is a Canvas-based ...

But if it's Blogger, as well as publishing the spreadsheet (as per the previous answer), you also need to use a Web Element to display it in the blog. NB: I haven't done this for a while, and when I last did the Google Docs publish command didn't have a "share to blogger " option. There's a chance it's ...
