Hello Ethan,
Thanks for asking. The documents validate in general in IE and XMetaL which we use to edit them. I am unaware of any browser besides IE that will handle EAD with dependent subdocument entities. If you can suggest one, I'd love to know. For example, when you try to open the document in Firefox it only sees the master document and ignores the dependent documents.

Hi Bob,

Are you sure they validate, in general?  Have you tried validation through Saxon or an editor like oXygen?  Can you open the document in Firefox?

Hello all,
In our EAD instance we have gaelic and other languages that require accented characters. At the moment when we enter these as entities and try to display them in IE, they fail to validate and thus do not display. This is a massive document with 20 dependent document entities. Do I need to change the <DOCTYPE> of the master document in some way - or modify my stylesheets, or modify the <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> statement in one or all of the xml files?
