Hi Nathan,

I found the problem in dsc11.  It contains the code:

<xsl:template match="c01/did">
<!--The next two variables define the set of container types that
may appear in the first column of a two column container list.
Add or subtract container types to fix institutional practice.-->
<xsl:variable name="first" select="container[@type='Box' or @type='Oversize' or @type='Volume' or @type='Carton']"/>
   
<!--This variable defines the set of container types that
may appear in the second column of a two column container list.
Add or subtract container types to fix institutional practice.-->

<xsl:variable name="second" select="container[@type='Folder' or @type='Frame' or @type='Page'  or @type='Reel']"/>


.......

The problem is that the stylesheet assumes that your container type is uppercase.  For many institutions, types are encoded as lowercase.  If you change the types to lowercase in the stylesheet, it should work.

Yes, they are not displaying -- at all!  I've tried using different combinations of the two style sheets to no avail.  Currently I'm using "eadcbs6" with "dsc11".

Here's a snippet of my container list for Mark:
<c03 level="file">
                        <did>
                            <container type="box">7</container>
                            <container type="folder">3</container>
                            <unittitle>65th <function>Anniversary</function> at Wilshire Boulevard
                                Temple (Los Angeles, Calif.). Tributes. H-P.<unitdate
                                    type="inclusive">1980.</unitdate></unittitle>
                        </did>
                    </c03>

Thank you!

Nathan

Greetings all,

I'm having some trouble getting container's to show up on a transformed
XML document.  I just setup Oxygen for EAD and downloaded the EAD
Cookbook style sheets.  My organization has some existing EAD files and
I was trying to transform them into HTML, but the container numbers
don't transfer.  Same thing if I view the style sheet-linked XML file in
my browser.  Everything else is showing up though.  Any ideas?

When you say "transfer" I assume you mean they're not displaying as you would like them to?  The Cookbook style sheets come in two parts (eadcbs#.xsl and dsc#.xsl).  It's the dsc#.xsl that handles the container part; each dsc differs slightly in the way it displays the container numbers, so it may just be that you need to choose a different dsc style sheet.  Which eadcbs and dsc are you using?
