Hello. Very new to the list. Very, very new to EAD. I recently installed
version 1.2 of XMetal on my workstation. I then went to LOC's EAD website
and downloaded all six of the SGML files and support documents listed on the
page and saved them all in the Rules subdirectory under XMetal 1 as text
files. My problem is that I cannot open any of them. I keep getting error
messages. For instance, when I try to open the ead_dtd file an error message
comes up that reads "error on line 438 of
C:\ProgramFiles\Softquad\XMetal1\Rules\ead_dtd.txt General Error could not
read file "eadbase.ent"
I have obviously messed up somewhere along the way in the download process.
Does anyone have any suggestions, or has anyone encountered this problem
before? You could reply off the list if you prefer. Thanks in advance.
