I'd like to add to Ricky Erway's response to this query that the rules file
for the Beta version of EAD has been available at Berkeley's ftp site since
the Beta version was released
(ftp://library.berkeley.edu/pub/sgml/ead/tools/ae).  A new rules file will
be compiled when Version 1.0 is released, and will be available for anyone
who wants to use it.  The location of the new file will be announced on
this list.

>HI All,
>My institution recenlty purchased SoftQuad's SGML publishing suite for
>Research Collections. We were told that Author/Editor, part of the suite,
>would support the TEI and EAD dtd's as part of the software bundle. Now
>that we have loaded both Author/Editor and Panorama Publisher, I have
>discovered that:
>        1)teilite.dtd was installed, but nothing recognizable as ead
>
>        2)even if ead.dtd was included, we would have to purchase an
>application called "Rules Builder" to be able to author ead documents, by
>converting ead.dtd to ead.rls.
>
>Does anyone familiar with the RLG bundle from SoftQuad have any
>recommendations on how I can obtain teilite.rls and ead.rls (plus any
>other necessary files) without having to buy ANOTHER piece of software and
>then generate the rules files? If these are necessary in the first place,
>why did SoftQuad not include them in the package anyway. How frustrating!
>
>I know others are probably encountering this now as well, so please direct
>responses to the list.
>
>Sincerely,
>Chuck Thomas
