Spreadsheets tend to mess with strings that look somewhat like a date, it will automatically convert it to a date when it sees things like that. You need to be really careful about spreadsheets automatically reformatting your data, make sure you properly indicate whether a field is Text or not.

How about making the Canvas tag not suck?
Seriously, you can give it the most simple test (draw an image every frame, or fill a rectangle), and it will run unacceptably slow. For comparison, a simple Win32 program that changes the background color of a maximized window once per frame has very low CPU usage, but a simple Javascript program that flashes a canvas red and blue every other frame uses 100% CPU usage if the canvas is 1024x768.
Until the canvas isn't the bottleneck anymore, Javascript graphical programs will continue to suck, and no amount of ASMJS magic will help with that bottleneck.
