As a someone just learning EAD and XSL(T), I would appreciate any sort
of resource that applies specifically to archives. Examples from other
institutions, contact names of people one could turn to when in a jam,
and a code library would be most useful. I would encourage you and
anyone else with experience to share to create such a resource. I for
one would use if often.

A seemingly large portion of messages to this list concern XSL, and
other somewhat technical themes, and while this is perhaps not the best
forum for discussing these more technically oriented issues, it makes
sense for EAD-XSL questions to be asked here. It would further appear to
me that some help documentation in this area might prove useful to a
number of people.
Such documentation already exists in many places, on the web and in
print, but I wonder if specifically archival examples would better
illustrate some XSL (and related) issues. The Guidelines, Chapters 4-6,
are one great resource, as is the Cookbook; perhaps these can be
supplemented with an XSL FAQ/ tutorial/ annotated "code library" ?
What do others think? Would this be useful to you, what form should it
take? Would you be interested in collaborating in producing such
