That's unfortunate because it happens that that html file has 3 comma-separated-fields for the first 19 lines... File requires that only 10 lines have the same number of fields... So in this special case it misdetects:

Thank you for your attention to this issue. I have a question. If a file can be identified as both an HTML file or a CSV file, So why do we choose CSV?
