    The SHED (Shared Histories of Exhibitions Database) Task Force, a
    sub-committee of the Research Libraries Group's Art and Architecture Group
    formed to investigate the possibility of creating a service to provide
    access to a shared database of exhibition histories, would like to hear
    from cultural institutions that have records describing past exhibitions,
    either published or for in-house use only. We are also interested in other
    projects related to exhibition histories, for example, those that list
    exhibition publications, archival material, and photographs. If your
    institution has been or is currently engaged in such a project, we would
    like to learn more about it. Please contact us at ccampbel@gallery.ca.

             Subject: XML Editors for an MA course

    I am looking for a suitable XML editor for use by students
    doing the XML option on our MA in Electronic Communication
    and Publishing. These students are mostly from the humanities
    and they do their practical work in a Windows NT4 computer lab.

    They need to get some practical experience of marking up documents,
    DTDs, schemas, and stylesheets with CSS and XSL. I would like
    them to use a Windows-based XML-aware editor and am looking
    for some suitable low-cost software. Does anyone have experience
    of products such as XMLWriter, Stilo Webwriter or the "lite" version
    of XMLSpy? Is there anything else I should be looking at?

    Dear List,

    Does anyone know of software that will convert scanned-in black letter to a
    normal ASCII font?

    Best wishes,
