Thank you, everyone for your replies.

@Michele -- I think you're right to do this server-side and not during
the initial transformation. I do want in in the finding aid, but
perhaps not the EAD directly, just the HTML.

@Eric -- I think this is the way to go; I will work on the specifics today.

@Emmanuel/@Wendell -- Thanks for the pointers, but I think I'm going
to do this in javascript, or perhaps php.

Again, thanks to all!

Nathan
