These are, as you suspect, Dynaweb specific questions relating to Dynaweb's
proprietary stylesheet language.

Subject: Ptr and Footnotes and some other questions
Sorry for repeating the questions, if they are.
I met some problems when I coded the finding aid. Any suggestions would be
I tried to use <Ptr> to do footnotes but they didn't work.
I followed the examples on EAD Tag Library:
<ptr actuate="user" show="replace" target="xxxx">
I put it at the end of the sentence where there should appear an icon. But
when we uploaded it in our dynaweb, an SGML browser through HTML, the icons
didn't show up. I was just wondering whether this has anything to do with
the stylesheet (someone else did the stylesheet and set it on the dynaweb.
Also, anyone has met a long long container list? Is there a way to create a
macro so that when I hit certain key certain tags will appear?
Thanks very much!
