We've yet to actually see the raw data, and I don't have a Windows box
with Excel XP handy to try to reproduce it myself. However, I strongly
doubt that is the only extra information in his file. Microsoft Office
products tend to store a lot of extra content in even the simplest
files, that tends to add a large constant factor to every file saved.
This extra content is not included in CSV files but is included in
Office XML files.
