I don't think anyone has laid down the law on how CSV files should be 
formatted, however you will generally find that records are separated by 
'\n' or '\r,\n' and fields are separated by ',' and when the fields 
themselves contain the comma  they field will be enclosed in single or 
double quotes.

Please begin your signaure with the '--' sequence when posting to 
newsgroups or refrain from using these disclaimers:
