1.  Note the change in the XML doc format for a county query - there is a new top-level attribute, and two 2nd level attributes, one for trs data, one for conventional data.  This is different.

-
2.  The list of valid PL tones is where we are headed, however for the next few months expect to get non-standard PL's in the XML doc.  I would just throw them away if you don't see a valid tone - however the logic is up to you.  Anything new going into the database has to maintain the new standard for PLs, but we are still processing legacy entries in the db.
