Dreamweaver is for authoring web pages, i.e. HTML. I'm pretty sure that the only functionality it will give you for anything else is code color/highlighting and autocomplete for tags. Any chance you can convince your institution that it's simply not the right tool for the job? Like pounding a nail with a screwdriver?
If their objection is cost, you might look at Notepad++ and its XML plugins (http://sourceforge.net/projects/npp-plugins/files/XML%20Tools/). That way at least you'll be able to validate against the schema. I don't think Dreamweaver will even do that. When I google it I get this discouraging reply:
"No results found for +dreamweaver validate xml schema"

Subject: EAD authoring in Dreamweaver CC
Does anyone have (or can point me to) a quick-start guide for setting up Dreamweaver CC to author/edit EAD documents? I've been using Oxygen for years, but IT at my current institution insists that I use Dreamweaver. I can't find anything in Dreamweaver online help, and my institutional IT is also unable to help.
I'd my most grateful for any help/suggestions.
