Description Chris Cormack 2010-05-21 01:02:18 UTC

---- Reported by rch@liblime.com 2009-01-15 10:32:47 ----

Two examples:

The first record attached includes an invalid subfield code: an unescaped double-quote.

The second includes a smattering of bad 0x1e characters.  Both were successfully added to a Koha installation, likely via import tools (need to verify).

Koha (or MARC::XML) should not allow a record to be saved that causes a fatal error when viewed or edited.

Mentioned sample data does not exist any longer. Setting this to resolved-fixed as I assume the problem does not exist in recent versions. Please reopen if this assumption is wrong.
