Hi Mike

I have now successfully converted a Finding Aid using this method.

Thanks so much for making this tool available.

For our internal use, I think I will change the different batch files to
make them more generic.

Regards,

FYI

I have upgraded the toolkit with Saxon 6.5.5 jars.

I have created an updated page for the full conversion toolkit. (no
build necessary)

http://lcweb2.loc.gov/music/eadmusic/eadconv12/ead2002_r.htm

There is a link to the old page.

Subject: Converting from EAD1  to EAD2 using XSLT and jEdit

Hi there

We are in the process of migrating EAD1 finding aids to EAD2 finding
aids.

Does anybody on here have an XSLT to share that will work with jEdit and
the XSLT processor? Or any more pointers on how to convert?

I have tried using the Conversion Toolkit from LOC:
http://lcweb2.loc.gov/music/eadmusic/eadconv12/ead2002_r.htm#style_xsl
. . . but SAXON 6.5.3  only works with Microsoft Java VM which of course
is now not supported anymore.

I have not tried using the Conversion Toolkit with Saxon 6.5.5, has
anybody tried this yet?
