Hi Lora,

It looks like the last file in the XML is folder 28a. I would make sure
your quotes in the file title for "It may interest Rhodes
Scholars..." (folder 28b) are not curly quotes. It looks like at least one
might be, although my zoom is not working to great on your screen shot.

Good luck!

Oh help collective wisdom!  I'm not even sure where to begin with
explaining this issue since I can't wrap my head around what's at fault, so
bear with me.

I am trying to export (with number c's if it matters) a large manuscript
collection migrated from AT.  We have exported numerous other AT-migrated
collections without issue, but this one is choking early on without an
obvious reason.  I see no special characters, no faulty encoding, etc.
Yes, we do have the known issue of having <title>s export as <title>
but we've gotten past that issue in other finding aids by doing a find &
replace in Oxygen and re-entering < and >.  (The joys of being a small
institution where you can get away with such manual manipulation!)

I've attached screenshots of the collection as it appears in AT and the XML
once opened in Oxygen.  The collection contains over 1,000 instances yet
the resulting XML file ends at folder 26 (the screen shot is the very end
of the document) and is just 14kb.  Something is clearly up.

Thanks in advance and let me know how else I can help.
