Subject [greenstone-devel] Import fails with Russian metadata
Hi all,

I've got a problem importing a collection that has Russian characters
in the metadata.xml file. I thought that there was support for foreign
character sets, so I don't know how to go about fixing this.

When I import, the RecPlug dies with a parse error:

Uncaught exception from user code:
RecPlug: ERROR /usr/local/gsdl/collect/progdev/import/metadata.xml is not a well formed metadata.xml file (
not well-formed (invalid token) at line 4486, column 44, byte 190213 at /usr/local/gsdl-build/perllib/cpan/XML/Parser.pm line 187
)

The character it doesn't like is the *second* Russian character in
the metadata field.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Doug Carter
