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 http://www.azizatech.com 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.
