I'm creating a finding aid for a photograph collection.   I borrowed  XML and XSL files from the University of Natal to create a draft inventory - - a portion of which is at: 

This inventory incorporates Dublin Core tagging.

Should an XSL file have some sort of if/then or for/next statement to accommodate XML files of different lengths?  The XSL file I'm using: 

does not have any kind of loop (only places for 499 records).

I'm currently editing with MS NotePad because XMetal is telling me that my XML Schema was not specified (I'm not sure how to get around that).

If I could get XMetal to work for me, should I be able to use it to create one style sheet for separate photograph collections of various sizes?  Would XMetal allow me to easily change my layout/tables for my records?

Thank you and sincerely, Peter
