I got a few newbie questions in this area.

I am lookig into adding support for MARCXML in my PMH-OAI (the PHP scripts 
from Oldenburg). However I am new to XML and wonder how the best way to do 
this is ?

Could I use the existing conversion file 
http://www.loc.gov/standards/marcxml/xslt/DC2MARC21slim.xsl to convert my 
existing data in oai_dc format into MARCXML ?

Could a harvester read a file with my original oai_dc data with a 
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" 
href="http://www.loc.gov/standards/marcxml/xslt/DC2MARC21slim.xsl"?> tag in 
it in order to read it as MARCXML ? Or do I need to implement the convertion 
internally in my OAI ?
