Excel and csv files

A tip from a user:

Saving as “csv (comma delimited)” in Excel does NOT work, but you can save it in MS-DOS format, which does work, by going to the “File → Save As” dialog, and selecting “csv (MS-DOS)” as the file type.

-- Apparently this must create a UTF-8 file.

I heard from a user that the Macintosh version doesn't work properly for saving cvs UTF-8 files.
Excel (Mac Office 2011) doesn't save UTF-8 properly on any of the CSV settings.
