1. The files are encoded as utf8
2. The default separator is a comma.
3. Quotes turn into quote quote and then we quote any value that contain ", the separator or LR/CF.
so a string with " in it would become "a string with "" in it"

@romain.ducarrouge , why do you say the default delimiter is a comma? Is there a way to select a different delimiter? We have customers asking for that.
