Hi Marsha, A lot of institutes appear to have trouble with building XSLT stylesheets for EAD documents. I was even thinking about opening a EAD consulting business for a while. :) Any ways, there is an excellent XSLT Reference at the MSDN Library: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/?url=/library/en-us/xmlsdk30/htm/xmrefxslt elements.asp?frame=true I suggest you take a look at some of the XPath functions, such as count() and string-length(). Use these with conditional tags such as <xsl:when> or <xsl:if>. Good luck.
