Yes, eadcbs6 just does the top-level elements. For the inventory elements you need one of the dsc stylesheets -- there are 15 of them, I think. The ead cookbook goes into detail about them, see page 29 and page 37- for more info.
We're also using cbs6 and we chose dsc4 for the lower-level elements, though we've made substantial changes to it (in particular implementing the reference elements to produce HTML links).

We chose eadcbs9.xsl because it could handle the <dsc> without calling
another file. We were looking for the simplest option since we're new
to this. I believe Chris is looking at this for us.
Do we need to go back to the 2000 cookbook and select another
stylesheet to work with eadcbs6.xsl to get the lower level elements?
Any help is appreciated.

That sounds right. Also, I found that <eadcbs6.xsl> works better than
some of the other stylesheets.
