Yes, ^ is not a valid subfield indicator as per ISO2709. By default the
export in not quite standard. When exporting the data from WinISIS you have
to make sure it is not limited to 80 chars per line (there should be no
CR/LF characters which are not part of a field value ) and has the proper
record terminator, field terminator and subfield delimiter. The expected
values are RT - ASCII code 29 (hex = 0x1D), FT - 30 (hex=0x1E), SD - 31
