Excellent Export, IE and Security

Following on from supporting large Client-side spreadsheets in Chrome, I’ve extended my pull request to also support IE, which uses its own proprietary Javascript method. Because, Microsoft.

And all was good with the world.

Until a Microsoft update broke HTML-formatted XLS files. Because, Microsoft. If you support XLS downloads on your site, and your users are getting a blank Excel window when they try and open them, thank Microsoft, and a security fix. Then go back to using CSV. Or ODS.

Thanks Microsoft.
