I’m trying to use your XSL with EAD XML files, but I get error message from xsltproc command when I use it. What XSLT processor do you use/recommand?
I’ve been using the Saxon XSLT processor (Home Edition)
I haven’t tried other XSLT engines, but it does require a processor that supports XSLT 2.0/XPath 2.0
Another issue that may cause problems is that this version of the transform is really designed to process the “style” of EAD used in the Archives Hub – and in the particular subset of docs we processed first. So there are some structural combinations which are valid EAD but may cause this to choke – I think multiple occurrences of unitid & unittitle within a single did may cause problems, for example.
We’re working on a modified version which might be more “robust”, though EAD allows so much variation, it’s quite difficult to come up with something that works for all cases
