We use NSGMLS at UC Berkeley and find it fast and easy
to use. You can download a version from the Online Archive
of California Toolkit page which is preconfigured to work
with EAD. Just unzip the file, drag an icon out onto your
desktop and drop your sgml file in to validate it. It works
with both EAD version 1 and EAD beta as long as you have
the correct DOCTYPE declaration at the top of your file.
Although NSGMLS also validates XML, our version is configured
to support SGML only. You can download it at:
