Use CSV file as in RFC4180

I recently bought the CSV import plugin and it is a little bit messy, since it is not “standard” CSV: it doesn’t allow break lines inside fields, use of double-quotes is by escaping them, etc…

I suggest the plugin follows the description of a CSV file as in RFC4180

    It would also be nice if the CSV import accepted the CSV export format as exported from Excel.
    at the moment I have to:

    To import data into website:
    1) Save the workbook
    2) Saveas the Website Data sheet as CSV
    3) Open the CSV file in notepad++ (Free online) we need to tweak what excel exports
    3a) Find and replace line feeds (LF \n) with nothing.
    3b) Find and replace carrage returns ( CR \r) with line feed new line CRLF (\r\n)
    3c) find and replace “” with “.
    i.e. every event should only be on one line.
