Describe the bug
Since the updated version of CovPass introduced the field option
standardized name, first name the app converts my name wrong. Because I’ve got a second first name (middle name) written with a blank character, the app converts the space into the following character:
<. Any other characters are correctly displayed in caps. I have no problem in the upper view of the ‘normal’ namespace.
Steps to reproduce the issue
I scanned my certificate as I got the app (before the new feature was released). As I checked out the new feature, I realised that my standardized name is spelled incorrect. You could reproduce my issue trough importing a certificate with a middle name.
Since screenshots are blocked, it’s hard to proof my point here. But it looks like this:
Name, Vorname / name, first name Kelle, Leon Niklas Standardisierter Name, Vorname / Standardized name, first name KELLE, LEON<NIKLAS
This looks incorrect and could lead to problems during checks.
The standardized name field should convert blank spaces (eg. whitespaces) into blank spaces.

True, the dcc contains family and given name separately. I suggested already using either spaces and comma or the icao format.
It’s not a bug. ICAO transliteration translates the machine readable space character into a <. It should probably not be displayed like this. But that is a visualization issue IMHO.
