    XML syntactic mistake

    When issuing "Report of IP Ranges by Licensor" in XML format, there is XML syntax problem in the Institute/Instance_address record due to the embedded slash sign. As a result the xml file cannot be displayed.

    Scenarion for example:
    Search for active e-product and create active license record.
    Enter to the "Locations" tab
    Choose library and create ip ranges
    Go to the Library record and make sure that the chosen library has an address details
    Go to the KB Tools, select a tool Report
    Run "Report of IP Ranges by Licensor" while the XML format is selected
    Select a tool: View Report Output and check the report

    The report cannot be displayed.

    The reason is the backslash in the Library address field "<Institute/Instance_address>".
    When the "Institute/Instance_address" was changed to "Institute_Instance_address", the report was displayed correctly.

    w/a: Use the following command:
    sed -e "s/\([^<]\)\(\/\)/\1_/g" < [input] > [output]
