"...made me wonder if people were exclusively/mostly converting their EAD to HTML within AT..."

I don't know about that, but another possibility is that the majority of people may not have switched to using the schema.  We haven't, we just continue to use the DTD in conjunction with the EAD Report Card.  I wonder if anyone has done a survey to see the level of schema usage vs DTD usage?  Certainly you'd think if there were tons of people using the schema there would be more schema-aware style sheets out there...perhaps even on the EAD Help Pages, nudge nudge...

Mark (and all),

The combination of the lack of schema-friendly EAD XSLTs I found on the
web
(compared to the large number available for DTD-compliant EAD) and
reading the blog post I mentioned
(http://woodsonresearch.wordpress.com/2009/01/07/a-humbling-discovery/)
made me wonder if people were exclusively/mostly converting their EAD to
HTML within AT.  I'm not very familiar with AT, so I didn't think to
consider that (1) it uses stylesheets to convert to HTML, or (2) they
might be usable for in-browser transformation.

I think I definitely have enough to work with now!

Thanks again!
Katie

Kathryn,

There's no need to delete the xmlns declaration within the file.  You'll
just need to update your current stylesheet to include the EAD
namespace.  So, wherever you've got something like
select="//scopecontent", or match="scopecontent", you'd change that to:

Select="//ead:scopecontent, and match="ead:scopecontent".

Also, I'm not sure what you're asking about with the Archivists' Toolkit
(as any EAD file that the AT creates will be schema-valid), but the AT
does contain a few stylesheets (such as "at_eadToHtml.xsl" and
"at_eadToPDF.xsl") which will work with most any EAD file (and which
already include the "ead" namespace).  In fact, if you've installed the
AT on your desktop, those files will be located at Archivists
Toolkit/reports/Resources/eadToPdf.

Let us know if that works out for you,

Hi Kathryn --

I haven't worked much with the schema, but I don't think the problem
lies in the style sheet.  The problem appears to be this line in the
root element (<ead>) :

	xmlns="urn:isbn:1-931666-22-9"

If you take that out, the document renders fine.  Is that line
absolutely necessary?

Michele

Subject: XSLT for HTML display of schema-compliant EAD?

Hello EAD folks,

I'm wondering if anyone has a stylesheet that works with
schema-compliant EAD documents for in-browser transformation to HTML, or
advice on converting a stylesheet for DTD-compliant EAD to one for
schema-compliant EAD. 

I found this blog post while searching for information on stylesheets
for schema-valid EAD.
http://woodsonresearch.wordpress.com/2009/01/07/a-humbling-discovery/ 

Is everyone who is using schema-valid EAD using Archivists' Toolkit to
convert their finding aids to HTML?  I was surprised that I wasn't able
to readily locate a stylesheet that works with schema-valid EAD, but
maybe it's a more complicated issue than I realize.

Here are the DTD- and schema-valid versions of the EAD I'm working with:
http://www.rpi.edu/~dunnk2/ead/q/AC_27_DTD.xml
http://www.rpi.edu/~dunnk2/ead/q/AC_27_XSDschema.xml 

The main stylesheet is here:
http://www.rpi.edu/~dunnk2/ead/q/test_for_display.xsl

It also uses a dsc stylesheet adapted from a stylesheet provided by
Michele Combs at her awesome workshop in Albany:
http://www.rpi.edu/~dunnk2/ead/q/su1_modified_kd.xsl 


Thanks very much in advance for any advice you can offer!

Katie
