I would also recommend using the EAD Cookbook. If you do, you will find
that very little technical support is needed and that you will be able to
do what you want with fairly little effort. It is not very hard to learn
if you have the tag library, application guidelines, and cookbook files.
(At least I learned it from scratch without any prior EAD or
computer programming knowledge.) Without the cookbook, you will probably
run into many more problems, especially with display. The cookbook has
the added advantage of using tags according to best-practices.
