Daniel - could you refresh my memory as to the compatibility problem
with the schema?

Subject: EAD Schema (W3C) and Xlink Compatibility

In August a problem with the W3C Schema for EAD 2002 was reported on
this list and also on the MODS and METS lists. At the time I revised the
Schema to fix the compatibility problem reported. I now have an EAD 2002
XSD DRAFT schema. I am looking for a few volunteers to test the draft
Schema, in particular to evaluate whether it solves the reported
problem, and as important, that I have not introduced unintended
changes. To thoroughly test the compatibility problem, I need a
volunteer or two to test the Schema in the context of a METS instance.

I request that anyone with the knowledge, skills, and interest in
testing the draft revision contact me and I will provided the address
where the file can be located.

Thank you,
