It was a bit of a challenge to get it to work for me. As of now, I only
have ead up, and not eadgrp. (I just have not set up the latter).
1. You need to put the ead.dtd and the ead entity files into the
2. You then need to modify the ead.dtd as follows:
Change the eadnotat declaration to read:
<!ENTITY % eadnotat SYSTEM "c:\nflite\data\eadnotat.ent" >
3. Following the eadnotat reference, comment out the eadbase.ent
declaration, and import the entire eadbase.ent file into the ead.dtd. One
should be able to just change the declaration in a manner similar to the
change to eadnotat, but for whatever reason N&F choked. It might be the
size of the eadbase file. I do not know.
4. Following the text from the eadbase.ent, change the eadchars
declaration to read as follows:
<!ENTITY % eadchars SYSTEM "c:\nflite\data\eadchars.ent" >
5. Within the text of the eadbase (after you import it), change the
declaration of the eadtable to read as follows:
<!ENTITY % eadtable SYSTEM "c:\nflite\data\eadtable.ent"
This should do it, unless I'm forgetting something, which is certainly
possible since it was several weeks ago that I set it up.
And, as aways, if "c:" is not the drive, substitute the right one in all
the right places.
