Thanks guys.

It does seem to make a difference when it's Windows, especially for  
me, because I never worked on Win and I use only Mac here.
The site will be in html and php.
So we will switch to linux hosting, since scripting will be involved.

What should generally be the "simpliest" road to follow then, for  
producing .csv files from two different forms on the site?

Thanks a lot,
