Thinking ahead on this one...

Is there anything special that needs to be done to handle quotes in the 
data or commas in the data? The idea of using a table seems to be a great 
work around for handling the potential commas and quotes in the data.

If I HAD to write something that handled the generic case (and it looks 
like I will soon) I think I could simply use the text functions in xslt to 
look for those characters and replace them with the correct escape 

Unless I missed something else.  Have I?

Microsoft excel will also open up an HTML file with a table in it, just as 
if it were a .xls
