Hi,

I actually do freelance consulting and one of the areas I work in is
xslt. I also am very familiar with EAD - having worked with it even
prior to its first release (when it was still called findaid). I
recently completed work for RLG upgrading their transformation routines
(which do not yet use XSLT) for Archival Resources so that they could
handle EAD2002.

I have also been working on a project using XSLT to transform manuscript
catalogs encoded in an extension to TEI to HTML and also to a format
that enables migration to a SQL database.

I generally charge about $75 an hour depending on the complexity and
extent of the job. Sometimes less, sometimes more.

I assume that you are aware of Michael Fix's Cookbook and have looked at
whether you can beg borrow and steal from them?

You can learn more about me at

and if you are interested in talking further I am available at
412-512-3815. It is best to set a time to talk via email so that I am
sure to be around.
