Re: Silly Logic problem w. Meta Tags

OK, I fiddled around with the meta tag names, but that appeared not to make
any difference.  Still not working on multiple Meta tags. But it does sound
like maybe using the new 2.1dev is a good idea, anyway -- should I just pick
the latest daily snapshot?

Once we've got it installed and config'd, we'll be using this on a website
which gets about 1 million hits per week, and about 3,000 searches a day.
Is the dev version ready for that kind of spotlight?  Or will there be a new
stable release sometime soon which perhaps we should wait for?

Thanks --

David VanHook

I don't have time to look right not, but my guess is that the html.c parser
is so dumb that it's seeing the "Content" in ContentType and thinks that is
the attribute CONTENT="..."

That is you have:
   <meta name="ContentType" content="WOD">

and html.c is seeing it as:

   <meta name="ContentType" ContentType="content">

If you are just starting then switch to 2.1-dev and install the libxml2
library so you get a good parser.  2.1-dev still has the old html.c parser,
but I'd strongly recommend using the libxml2 parser (which is specified by
the IndexContents directive).
