Meta information

I followed the discussion in March about meta information. The German
Etext project needs TODAY a way to include meta information for indexing.
So I went the proagmatic way and included the following in each header:


<META name="BOOKTITLE" value="Reclams Maerchenbuch">
<META name="TITLE" value="Rotkaeppchen">
<META name="YEAR" value="1990">
<META name="PUBLISHER" value="Philipp Reclam jun. GmbH & Co.">
<META name="ADDRESS" value="Stuttgart">
<META name="AUTHOR" value="Gebrueder Grimm">
<META name="TYPE" value="INBOOK">
<META name="PAGES" value="103-108">
<META name="ISBN" value="3-15-040005-8">


I followed the Scribe (or BIBTEX) conventions as close as possible.
The meta info will not be shown by a browser. But there will be problems
when more meta info is needed, there is no way of further grouping the
meta informations. Except putting everything in the value field like

<META name="BIBTeX" value="@Book(Grimm,
title ='Little red riding hood')">

Any comments?
