Built-in filters - Filter all documents as CSV (ForceCSVMime)

The ForceCSVMime filter forces all documents that are processed by the filter framework to present a text/csv MIME type. This is useful for collections that use the CSVToXML filter where the data source only includes content from a single CSV file or set of CSV files and the web server that hosts the CSV file is not returning the correct MIME type.

This filter should only be used if all the files being processed are CSV files. Use with other file types may result in unexpected behavior or filter errors.
