I've just received a marked up finding aid to mount on our
server. The container list is divided up into subseries
(not series). Some headings for these are:

Subseries 1. National Science Foundation Proposals. 1985-1986.
Subseries 2. Administrative Files. 1986-1989 and undated.

etc.

The collection itself is one among a series of collections,
so in this context the subseries heading is appropriate. I'm
tending to think that within the context of the finding aid
however, these "things" act in the role of series. I don't
have an archival background so I wanted to check with others
on this list. Shall I set the level attribute on the <c01>
tag to "series" or to "subseries"?
