Bug#292553: xlhtml: date as number in certain xls

Package: xlhtml
Version: 0.5.1-2
Severity: normal

Near the bottom of the page


there's a "Download an Excel version of the unit prices" link.  In the
xlhtml output from that document, the line "Unit prices effective as
at" shows a number like 38376 where I think it's meant to be a date
the same as what's shown on the web page (like 24/01/2005).

I don't have an actual Excel to see what it shows, but for what it's
worth xls2csv from the catdoc package prints it as a date.
