Exporting OPML from NetVibes

I use NetVibes, and have recently tried to export my feeds as OPML, and noticed that it generates invalid OPML. The OPML 2.0 spec states:

A missing text attribute in any outline element is an error. 

NetVibes’ elements look something like this:

It’s very easy to fix – just add a new “text” attribute with the contents of the existing “title” attribute. It trips up some other OPML importers, though.

[Edit: I wrote a little python script to fix this problem specifically: https://github.com/mjkelly/experiments/blob/master/opml-fix-text-attr.py]
