This is more a question than a comment about EAD.  We know there is
     the <langmaterial> attribute for <archdesc>, however our some of our
     finding aids explicitly the describe the language of the material
     within the finding aid.  I have been tagging the language information
     in <odd> within <archdesc>:

     For example:  <odd><head>Language and Dialects></head><p>Arabic,
     English, Hebrew</p><odd>

     Has anyone else encountered this issue?  If so, how did you approach
