For those interested, there's a new tool out on the EAD Help Pages, (description below). I tried to make the instructions really detailed so that people at institutions without much tech support or who don't have much experience with XSL could implement them.

"Objective: Instructions and code for adding three functionalities to your EAD Web display:
  1. Collapsible sections
  2. Hyperlinked Series Quick Links
  3. Alternating colors in the Container List

All code is from the 2009 finding aid Web display redesign at Wilson Library at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This zip file contains an HTML and XML file as well as a PDF file. The PDF contains the necessary XSL, CSS, and JavaScript code, instructions on how to integrate the modifications into your stylesheet, and some troubleshooting hints. The HTML and XML are an example finding aid."
