Re: how to get multi-line author in ODT export?

Hi Eric,

I think the problem is in this two lines of `org-odt-template', that
creates the meta.xml file inside the odt file:

(format "<dc:creator>%s</dc:creator>\n" author)
(format "<meta:initial-creator>%s</meta:initial-creator>\n" author)

Perhaps, modifying them like this:

(format "<dc:creator><![CDATA[%s]]></dc:creator>\n" (replace-regexp-in-string 
"\\\\\\\\" "\n" author))
(format "<meta:initial-creator><![CDATA[%s]]></meta:initial-creator>\n" 
(replace-regexp-in-string "\\\\\\\\" "\n" author))

We could do this in our documents:

#+AUTHOR: Han Solo \\ Chewbacca

(little tested)

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
