What is the difference between Comma Separated Format (CSV) and Excel Spreadsheet Format (CSV)?

There isn't any difference between these formats. In user-testing, it was found that many users did not realise that data in the Comma Separated Format (CSV) would open in their default spreadsheet application, and instead chose the more cumbersome HTML format. We added this second description of the CSV format to aid these users.
