Jackie,

   <datafield tag="700" ind1="1" ind2=" ">
      <subfield code="a">Chopin, Frédéric</subfield>
      <subfield code="d">1810-1849</subfield>
   </datafield>

This is proper UTF-8 (C3 A9) for e-acute, so if the encoding declaration is correct in your output XML file, there shouldn't be any problems.

I have just begun working on some conversion
from MODS to MARC21.  I have some questions for
the list if I may:

1) the mapping of uniform title (130/240):

   I used MODS2MARC21slim.xsl* to convert MODS to
   MARCXML/slim.  Somehow, the personal name got
   translated into 700, thus, the uniform title
   got mapped to 130 instead of 240.

   How does one need to do in the xsl in order to
   prevent that from happening

2) MARC 042 authentication code:

   Has anyoe used 042 for MODS?  It is not currently
   listed in http://www.loc.gov/marc/relators/relaothr.html#rela042b 

3) diacritics issue

   The OAI mods file contains diacritics for Chopin, Frdric, 1810-1849,
   like this:

    <mods:name type="personal">
      <mods:namePart>Chopin, Fr&#xE9;d&#xE9;ric</mods:namePart>
      <mods:namePart type="date">1810-1849</mods:namePart>
    </mods:name>

   When running through the stylesheet, it got translated
   into:

   <datafield tag="700" ind1="1" ind2=" ">
      <subfield code="a">Chopin, Frédéric</subfield>
      <subfield code="d">1810-1849</subfield>
   </datafield>

   Frédéric will not be loaded with proper diacritic acute on the letter e's.

I am wondering if anyone has solved the character set issue from MODS to 
MARC21slim?

Thank you very much for your help!

Regards,

--Jackie
