Letters of Note: The Internet Tidal Wave
May 26th, 1995: Bill Gates sends a memo, entitled "The Internet Tidal Wave," to all executive staff within Microsoft. In it, he makes clear his intention to focus the company's efforts online with immediate effect and "assign the Internet the highest level of importance," going on to call it, "the most important single development to come along since the IBM PC was introduced in 1981."

Exporting data to CSV and Excel in your Rails apps | Plataforma Blog
So, these are the three rules for dealing with Excel-friendly-CSV: 1) Use tabulations, not commas. 2) Fields must NOT contain newlines. 3) Use UTF-16 Little Endian to send the file to the user. And include a Little Endian BOM manually. Keep this in mind and you’ll never have to explain to your clients how to open the data export in Excel.
