Hi everyone,

I'm looking at adding structured meta data to my stylesheets and wondered if anyone has already been doing something along the lines of the example below.

Perhaps if someone has already determined a useful set of meta data for stylesheets, they could share how they would approach what I'm trying to accomplish: structured meta data for access by another XSLT stylesheet or for recognition in a content management system.

I'm following the Dublin Core namespace policy at:


And the list of elements at:


But in my searching I haven't seen anyone share their approaches to doing this, so I thought I would ask for what might be common practice out there.

BTW, I'm using CVS as my source code control system, hence the use of the "$" in some of the fields.

Does anyone know of content management systems that look for, recognize and take advantage of Dublin Core meta data?
