[typo] Invalid RSS feed

I'm having some trouble with my Typo blog's RSS feed
(http://blog.gillspatch.co.uk/xml/rss20/feed.xml). The feed validator
shows the following error:
Basically, within the "<author>" tags, whatever script generates the xml
file is putting my username/display name/etc. ("Gilly") instead of my
email address. RSS 2.0 specifications say that an email address should
be within the "<author>" tags, so this is obviously a problem.
There are two ways of fixing this. One way is to edit the file that
generates the xml file so that my email address is inserted within the
"<author>" tags, and the other is to edit it so that the "<author>" tag
itself is replaced by the "<dc:creator>" tag, so the line in the file
would look like "<dc:creator>Gilly</dc:creator>".
Unfortunately, I don't know how to do either. Can anyone give me some
advice so I can generate a valid RSS feed?
