Subject [greenstone-users] ex.Date format
I am using an XML file for items in a scanned book (PagedImgPlug). The document metdata Date has the value "198412" for December 1984. However the date was displayed as 198 on the webpage using [ex.Date] in Vlist. I created a browsing classifier using DateList. When I click on Dates from the navigation bar, it displayes as:

198 _textmonth41_

Here is what the .item file looks like:

<PagedDocument>
<Metadata name="Title">從九月開始</Metadata>
<Metadata name="Contributor">曉明</Metadata>
<Metadata name="Date">19841201</Metadata>
<Page imgfile="chaa00001_0003.jpg">
<Metadata name="Title">Forword</Metadata>
</Page>
<Page imgfile="chaa00001_0004.jpg">
<Metadata name="Title">Table of Contents</Metadata>
</Page>
...

And here is what the doc.xml looks like:
