Excellent solution! I can do this in my copy of the DTD and then send it to the 22 students in the class.
Thank you, again.

I think you have to turn on the referencing of the xml character entities
in line 927 of the DTD file.
E. CONDITIONAL SECTION: XML Character Entities
Entity name: xmlchar
<!ENTITY % xmlchar
If the line reads IGNORE in your DTD file change to INCLUDE and see if it
(why & gives you and error is still a mystery, however...)
I think this is explained somewhere in EAD documentation, I'll try
to find it.
Hope this helps,
