We are also using XMetaL (v1.2) and the EAD Cookbook. I put
my XML documents in a newly created "EADs" folder and the
Cookbook XSL stylesheets in the "Display" folder.
Have you edited the ead.mcr file in the "Macros" folder to
point to the stylesheet correctly? I renamed the style
sheet we use to ead.xsl and modified ead.mcr to read:
// Path to XSLT stylesheet is hard coded
var xslPath = Application.Path + "\\Display\\ead.xsl";
This is found about 3/4 of the way down the document.
See section 7.2 of the Cookbook.
