Subject [greenstone-devel] escaped '[' and ']' in metadata in GLI
Hi,
I use a fairly common idiom in creating my metadata; putting square
brackets [ and ] around information about the document that the cataloguer
derived from a source other than one of the prescribed sources of this
information (al la AACR2).

an example is:
<Metadata name="Creator" mode="accumulate"> Guimaraes : sociedade
Martins Sarmento[publisher]</Metadata>

Is is also use for a date on undated materials [1953] or sometimes [1953?]
when the cataloguer is unsure.

I am using the '' escape character to insert these characters in my
collection, so far with no problem.

I tried importing my files and metadata into GLI so I could take advantage
of it's superior metadata facilities, only to find it does not recognise
the escape characters. (I get folders named '[' and chopped up fields).

Does anyone know how to get around this?
