For example a mimic page which is a display of an excel worksheet saved locally on the drive.

If you want it dynamic you can do it via animations or call it from some mimic script.
This opens up Excel, if you want to open in up within ViewX then you may need to save it as a HTML file, stick it on some webserver and just open that.

It's obviously using something for the GIS integration in the newer versions, but we still need to use dodgy script hacks to launch IExplore.exe to popup a webbrowser..
