Dear Oscar,

I just tried removing a line from the FDT file
copied into Greenstone before building, and the
collection seems to be built fine without the
deleted field either "as is" or by exploding (be
sure to edit the file in a text editor and not a
word processor). Perhaps Michael Dewsnip who
developed this plugin could inform us whether
this technique should work in general.

Best regards, John
