I'm looking for a way to preserve italicized text when exporting from XLSX to CSV. I know CSV doesn't support styled text, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of a workaround. For instance, does Excel have a way of converting selected cells to HTML? (Wrapping the italicized text in
em tags would solve my problem.)
UPDATE: Thought I should clarify, my intention is to import the CSV into a MySQL database through a PHP script, and output as HTML.
Another UPDATE: I'm using Excel 2008 for Mac.
