This post is a test of how useful the Google Docs I use at home could be at work. I created a chart of project financial data similar to one we use in Excel with some dummy data. Google Sites is built into Google Apps for Business and would supposedly allow easy publishing of these data. When I selected "Publish" on the chart, it gave me some HTML to put on any site as a way of publishing the chart. Here goes:

As you can see above, it works quite well. It works even more easily in Google Sites, where you can navigate through the user interface to the specific Google Doc, Chart, or whatever you want to show without inserting any code. The only caveat is that you have to change the permissions on that doc to make it accessible. Otherwise, it is only visible when someone you explicitly share the document with has signed into their account.
