Creating MS Office documents using PHP

I have recently discovered an article on how to generate MS Office Documents using PHP. Basically this article does not contain anything new, demonstrating how to utilize the COM API to construct Word and Powerpoint and how Excel can be created from an HTML table. While this article will not enable you to approach the issue in an OS independent way (you will in fact need a windows server to create Word and Powerpoint documents) it still assembles the concepts for all 3 major MS Office products, containing easy to understand code snippets.
