We have over 5,000 <list> elements in our finding aids, many of them containing nested <list>s.  Since the AS data model only allows for simple ordered lists, we are finding that while our <list> elements with nested <list>s are ingesting, much of the data in the element is missing.  For example, when attempting to ingest the below <list> found within an <arrangement> tag, only the <item> elements in the final nested <list> ingest

<list><file:///C:\Users\jac811\Desktop\sch01172.xml><item>Series I. Biographical and personal</item><item>Series II. Gwynne family</item><item><file:///C:\Users\jac811\Desktop\sch01172.xml> Series III. Correspondence<list><file:///C:\Users\jac811\Desktop\sch01172.xml><item>Subseries A. Personal</item><item>Subseries B. Professional</item></list></item><item><file:///C:\Users\jac811\Desktop\sch01172.xml> Series IV. Writings<list><file:///C:\Users\jac811\Desktop\sch01172.xml><item>Subseries A. Articles</item><item>Subseries B. Monographs </item><item>Subseries C. Pamphlets</item></list></item><item> Series V. Elizabeth David Ltd.</item><item> Series VI. Recipes and research</item><item> Series VII. Artemis Cooper and Jill Norman</item><item><file:///C:\Users\jac811\Desktop\sch01172.xml> Series VIII. Photographs and oversized<list><item>Subseries A. Photographs </item><item>Subseries B. Oversized</item></list></item></list></arrangement>
Has anyone else encountered this issue?  If so, how have you addressed the problem?
