Examples of EAC encoded documents

Below are examples of EAC encoded documents. Each is displayed in two ways: the XML structure hierarchically given; and each presented as it might be viewed. The latter presents the authority data first, as it might be viewed by the public, followed by the control information from the <eacheader>.

Note that in the Shakespeare example, the "authoritative" heading is actually last in the XML source. The stylesheet displays it as the "Used" heading by using the "authorized" attribute.
