Is there a particular reason you chose OFX v. QIF?  The QIF format is
much easier to create.  The downside of QIF is that you cannot easily
tell if an import is a duplicate as automatically as you can with OFX.

Also, OFX doesn't allow you to specify a split transaction, but that
might not apply to you.
