Maybe it's the same for colon-separated-text. Colon separated text was supposed to be the password file format export, not entirely sure what to do in this case. $man 5 passwd "The login name must never begin with a hyphen (``-''); also, it is strongly suggested that neither upper-case characters or dots (``.'') be part of the name, as this tends to confuse mailers. No field may contain a colon (``:'') as this has been used historically to separate the fields in the user data- base." This is BSD version. Shinnok Content of type "text/html" skipped
