I wanted to thank everybody who has contributed EAD specimens to my little project so far.
I also have 2 pending submissions that I might not get around to processing till early next month or maybe President's day weekend. I'm still looking for archon output (I don't think I have any yet), specimens that use entityref, and any other interesting EAD examples.
I've created two little tools over the Martin Luther King Jr. weekend using the sample collection as test files.
The first tool is an XSLT stylesheet that turns EAD to html. The XSLT works with DTD and schema EAD; and it works with both nested <c>s and with numbered <c0x>s. It is based on the XSLT for EAD in the OAC, but in XSLT 1.0 rather than 2.0. It includes a little python wrapper to convert EAD files as a batch to HTML.
You can see the sample EAD noun-obscured specimen collection files transformed to HTML here:
I just got started on this, and I still have a lot of work to do on, so I'm not sure I'd recommend anyone use this yet -- but I think the results so far look promising as far as being able to develop a generic XSLT that will do something reasonable with pretty much any EAD input. Feel free to file issues here https://github.com/tingletech/ead_basic_xslt/issues
The second tool I created is a little EAD tag analyzer:
You can see the sample EAD collection's tag use counts here:
Let me know if you have thoughts or ideas on any of these projects.
Thanks for your help! -- Brian
