Anyone know whether the o with the overbar is OK to use in EAD XML?  The
overbar alone as a spacer is a legit symbol in the Latin-1 (ISO 8859-1)
character set (listed as ¯)  but o *with* the overbar is not an
included letter (see http://www.december.com/html/spec/latin1.html). 
Also it doesn't appear in the special characters bar when editing an EAD
document in XMetaL.  It's causing some problems with our indexing
process so if I can make a good argument for replacing it with a plain
"o" in our finding aids that would be lovely.

Thanks --

Michele C.
