Confirmed with Simon that fixed list of judge names has been included in the rng file for the proofer (checked rng files, added a couple of new values and tested them). Still need to find out from him if an empty string is an acceptable value.
The existing 1790s data has no judge names in it. Asked SD if he wants that added by the proofer or how we wants those names included.
As far as I'm concerned, we're ready to have proofer go through records. It looks like about 250 of the 750 records in the 1790s set will need some attention. They have snippets of text that my battery of regexp's could not figure out how to deal with - typically extraneous bits of names, second charges or subsequent findings by the court. The XML structure accommodates those features, but the regexp provides for only the simplest cases.
