HISCO descriptions for DB

We've found the experience of searching the HISCO site difficult. As we're relying on HISCO encoding, I've scraped the site with a PHP script, which produces an XML file (and processed it with some XSLT to transform it into SQL inserts). This is a package that contains all the scripts, as well as the XML file produced.

There is also a simple search here.
