Thanks Jackie, this new software could prove very useful for a lot of
us. I've been experimenting recently with another Perl-based XML to
MARC to XML conversion script and have found myself pleasantly
surprised at how well it works. Right now we're playing with how well
it converts the MARC diacritics for Russian and European languages
into SGML entities and it seems to do well so far. Just a report.
This tool can be gotten at:
I should give big thanks to Bill Birthisel and Ed Summers for a lot
of help in finding and then their improvments to this package. I'll
go a'looking for the new tool as well.
