Yes, I shall tell them to give them a try.  The GNOME help system
(scrollkeeper + yelp) depends on some meta info for optimal results;
I'll keep you posted.

In short: producing HTML or DocBook or XML from texi files we have to
make sure to carry over the Dublin Core stuff:

   Linkname: "Encoding Dublin Core Metadata in HTML" (Kunze, 1999)
   Linkname: Recording qualified Dublin

XML and more general:
   Linkname: Resource Description Framework (RDF) / W3C Semantic Web Activity

Does somebody already work on these issues?  If not, I can do some
research and propose transformation mapping.  For a start we have to
make sure title element will be available as HTML META info:

    <meta name="DC.Creator" content="Richard Stallman">
    <meta name="DC.Title" content="GNU Emacs Manual">
    <meta name="DC.Language" content="en-US">

And for XML it may look like this (more complicate records are possible!):

<rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="";
  <rdf:Description rdf:about="";>
    <dc:title>GNU Emacs Manual</dc:title>
    <dc:creator>Richard Stallman</dc:creator>
    <dc:publisher>Free Software Foundation, Inc.</dc:publisher>
