Encoded Archival Description (EAD)

Migration Notes:

EAD is originally in SGML, and some conversion is necessary to XML. One thing in particular that has been causing some problem, is the text encoding. At some point in the process, an e-acute (é) character got converted to a undefined 0xFFFD, which should be 0xC3A9 in UTF-8. Other symbols have not translated correctly, so here's the summary so far:
