The GAMMA project, a NEH-funded collaborative cataloging project within
the University Center in Georgia has received a grant from the Georgia
Historical Records Advisory Board to engage in a small EAD DTD project.
We have explored all the wonderful information that the early implementors
of EAD have put out there on the internet (which followers are much
appreciative of). However, we do seem to have hit a small snag in our
encoding which we can't seem to find the answer for.
We were hoping to use the <dsc type="combined"> with the tabular layout,
however examples of this are few and far between. We have
perused the information presented in the "Encoded Archival
Description Retrospective Conversion Guidelines" about the tabular
layout. We have also beat our heads against the wall for three days.
Is there any brave soul out there that has survived the
tabular layout and lived to tell of it? Your help would be much
