Michael:

  Thanks so much for the quick response.

  The thing is, I've had to add a Notation section to the EAD DTD to
accomodate .gif graphics files for my various <dao> elements within the
document instance.  Would a generic .lgc file still work then?

   Also, thanks for info on SoftQuad, now Interleaf.  I emailed them
about XML compliance quite some time ago and never did get a response.

Sincerely, Derrick
