You can also remove the gridlines on the published URL by adding the &gridlines=false parameter... I know, not very discoverable.

The long delay between updates – I think you are right about the ImportXML using cached data b.t.w. – of more than 1 hour rules goal seeking using this method totally out. Which is not nice, and makes it hard to use the new Import features for really exiting stuff like creating a frontend spreadsheet for everyone to query a backend spreadheet to do the math on using undisclosed algorithms. But the roundtrip just takes too long (last measurement: 75 minutes) for this to be feasable yet.

Google not likes it. Now a "Loading..." appears in each cell

Yeah... it ran fine for some 10 hours, updating around every hour, but then started to break again showing only "loading"...
