The process that's taking 2 days (circa) is the import process. I ran
the buildcol.pl script this morning and it took less than an hour to
complete. For the import I have 40200+ jpegs with no text. I've created
a series of .item files for the PagedImagePlugin which contains two
lines of metadata used to organize the images. The PagedImagePlugin does
create a smaller image for the web pages though. Other than that, I'm
not doing anything complicated.

May I ask you another question? In my .item files that are being
processed, the metadata is indicated as so:

<Title>La giovent□ perduta - Rifacimento definitivo del testo (C/cassetto)
<Subject and Keywords>Narrativa e diari di viaggio|La giovent□ perduta -
Rifacimento definitivo del testo (C/cassetto)

My problem is that where there is something like '(C/cassetto)' the text
is being truncated and becomes '(C'. Is there an escape sequence to
allow the use of special characters (and accented ones also)?

Thanks for the time you've dedicated me, I am very grateful.
