Regarding this issue I have talked to Jeff Johnson, the author of Zedit (also the
first and main programmer of any XTree for DOS version, by the way), and this is
what he says:

[You could] "record a keyboard macro to fix up the date when it is pasted into
a file. It would probably be easiest to simply move the cursor to the "1" in
"100", delete it, and put the cursor back where it belongs."

Hope this helps!?
