We at the NLM History of Medicine Division are developing our EAD tag list and we are deciding whether to encode DSC as combined or analyticover.

My question involves display and if the stylesheet can separate series descriptions from container lists if we use the combined approach? I'd like the user to view series descriptions independent of their box list, but wasn't sure if this was possible using combined. I didn't see any real discussion in the EAD Guidelines.

What I'm aiming for is that the user can read a set of series descriptions and then click to a box list without repeating the series note.

Thanks for any advice.
