Google Docs and Spreadsheets

Embedding Google Docs is simple. A normal Google document link will look similar to this:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/18C3gTlL8vce-INCTf6l5c4MdSQTdOGrUyemA43jFAWo/edit#gid=0

The portion that is bolded is the ID of the document — the part you need to copy and paste. Example:
[docs]18C3gTlL8vce-INCTf6l5c4MdSQTdOGrUyemA43jFAWo[/docs]

Google Spreadsheets work in the same way, only you would use the MyCode: [sheets]Google_ID_Goes_Here[/sheets]

Note that the words "docs" and "sheets" are plural, as Google brands them.
