My date range is from 2000BCE-2010CE. I'm using a form to create the
XML, but this form does not support BCE dates so it has to be edited
by hand.


This is what the XML looks like now:

<unitdate type="inclusive" label="Dates:" encodinganalog="245$f"
normal="2000/2010" era="ce" calendar="gregorian">2000-2010</unitdate>



Would I do this?

<unitdate type="inclusive" label="Dates:" encodinganalog="245$f"
normal="2000/2010" era="bce/ce"
calendar="gregorian">2000-2010</unitdate>


Or also add a negative:

<unitdate type="inclusive" label="Dates:" encodinganalog="245$f"
normal="-2000/2010" era="bce/ce"
calendar="gregorian">2000-2010</unitdate>


Could I add to the text:

<unitdate type="inclusive" label="Dates:" encodinganalog="245$f"
normal="-2000/2010" era="bce/ce" calendar="gregorian">2000 BCE-2010
CE</unitdate>




Mostly I think the era is wrong. How would I state this? Break it up
into two somehow?


thank you,
