UC San Diego discovered an issue in R2 that we informally reported to B. Westbrook in early June. The bug is this: note fields containing either an & entity ref and/or an <extref> tag do not get properly wrapped in a <p> tag upon EAD export. For example, all of our <prefercite> notes contain the term "Special Collections & Archives", and because of the presence of the ampersand in the note, do not get wrapped. Similarly, if a bioghist note has an & somewhere in it, none of the paragraphs get wrapped in a <p> tag, leaving us with giant block of text. And last, in altformavail, where we record the existence of digital versions of our collections with a link, the existence of an <extref> causes the whole note to not get wrapped in a <p> tag when we export the EAD.

This issue breaks our local scripts and also prevents validation on the Online Archive of California. At the time, I didn't create a JIRA ticket, because we were told the problem was being worked on...but now I'm going through the steps to create the ticket. Is there any feedback/observations on this in the member community before I do so? It's happening in v1.5.0, which we tested this morning. Thanks!
