Why are the changes that I made in a CSV file not saved?

Why are the changes that I made in a CSV file not saved? For example, I change the style of a cell to "Numbers". I save the file, but when I open the file again, the changes aren't saved.

CSV files contain only data, as comma-separated values. If you want to keep your formatting changes, save the file as an Excel file (i.e. myfile.xls), using the 'save as' file menu option.

"CSV files can't contain styling. Any styling you apply will only exist for that editing session.

If you want to preserve styling, save in a different format, such as XLS."
