Invalid XML from File List with Date Format Variables

Post by bar_foo »

The File List function to create an XML file of metadata can produce invalid content if date format variables are used. When a date like the creation date is modified with date format variables, the variables are added to the item name between square brackets. For example, "{Creation Date [Y m d]}" produces "<Creation_Date_[Y_m_d]>". Square brackets are not permitted in XML item names so the file is not valid.
Tested in Windows 10, 64-bit. XnViewMP 0.93.
