I decided to try out the XmlSpy Home Edition 2004.
I am running Windows 2000 operating system.
I have never had this program on my PC before.
I really don't even use XmlSpy and never have. The home edition looks
really good for doing EAD stuff.
So I decided to test the "out-of-the-box" approach.
It was successful.
I did not even have to choose an External XSL processor.
I think I must have downloaded the Full package on my XP at home.
I remember I was using it under an evaluation version time limit.
Here is my task sheet (below).
