Sorry, I forgot to add the CLI switch "-z" for decompression attempts.
On Linux I get (as expected): /tmp/Excel_Test.xlsx: text/xml; charset=us-ascii compressed-encoding=application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet; charset=binary
But on MacOS I get: /tmp/Excel_Test.xlsx: application/x-decompression-error-gzip-Unknown-compression-format
