Aha.  It's in the isolat2 character set ():

<!ENTITY Omacr	"&#x014C;"> <!-- LATIN CAPITAL LETTER O WITH MACRON -->
<!ENTITY omacr	"&#x014D;"> <!-- LATIN SMALL LETTER O WITH MACRON -->

Drat.  

Apparently XMetaL displays only the isolat1 and numeric character sets
in its "Insert special characters/symbols" bars.  I shall be contacting
them about this...

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 &#175;)  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 --
