Description: ------------ On line 64 in the package.xml -fixed bug in Workbook::sheets() (Björn Schotte). The "ö" character causes installation failure by Pear: [root@server tmp]# pear install Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer-0.9.0.tgz downloading Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer-0.9.0.tgz ... Starting to download Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer-0.9.0.tgz (55,541 bytes) .............done: 55,541 bytes XML error: not well-formed (invalid token) at line 64 Download of "pear/Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer" succeeded, but it is not a valid package archive Error: cannot download "pear/Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer" Immediate workaround: change character to "o". Fix: change ISO code of XML file? -fixed bug in Workbook::sheets() (Bjorn Schotte).

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better. This is odd, because for me the installation of Spreadsheet_Excel_Writer has worked several times regardless of the umlaut. Anyways, I have changed to umlaut to oe in CVS.
