On the EAD HELP PAGES site, in the listing of
helper files (
we list one set of "rls" files that can be used
with Author/Editor. A question has come up about
whether these rules files are created from a
tabular or non-tabular DTD.

I know that WordPerfect needs to have a specific
logic file for either option. However, after looking at the
body of the A/E rules file, it looks like the control
over tabular-vs-non-tabular is retained in the core DTD.
Thus - there is no need for two versions of rules files.

Can anyone verify/comment on this?
