I am afraid you are totally wrong! Have a look at the Mathematica
functions _Export_ and _Import_ and their long list of recognized file
formats:

http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/functions/Export

http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/functions/Import

You will notice that not only Mathematica 5.1 can read and write CSV
files but also XLS files among many other type of text and binary
files.
