DEMO:
NOTE:
If you are trying to display Excel CSV files (.csv), do NOT use:
text/csv
application/csv
text/comma-separated-values (works in Opera only).
If you are trying to display a particular file type (for example, a WAV or PDF), then this will almost always work…
 <input type=”file” accept=”.FILETYPE” />
