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.
