That's true. The information, which header fields to generate is quiet 
hidden in the docs.

I just tested it again.
swishdescription is _not_ generated (i.o.w. empty), if IndexContents _and_ 
DefaultContents are missing in the configfile.
You have to use DefaultContents at least. You can leave out IndexContents.

And the metatags are not read, if you leave out IndexContents.

My database records contain html pages.

Looks like the "Document-Type:" field is not read correctly by the indexer, 
if you use the "-S prog" switch. The indexer should use that field and not 
the filetype it extracts from the URL.

Sorry. I had both of them in configfile because I thought that was the 
error, why swishdescription was not generated.
