------- Comment #3 from leinfelder at nceas.ucsb.edu  2008-02-21 12:26 -------
This is a problem due to the record delimiter [not] specified in the EML for
the data.
the EMParser defaults to:
recordDelimiter = "\r\n";
the large data set:
has the data records delimited with just "\n"

Is "\r\n" an acceptable default delimiter to use?  Should we:
1. default it to the default delimiter used on the platform that Kepler is
running (and parsing) on?  (not a solution at all, since it's from the system
of whomever uploaded the data)  
2. mandate that people be rigorous with the metadata so that it matches the

I vote for #2

Suggestions on how to proceed are greatly encouraged....
