Re: description meta tag in search results

Yes, I do have

PropertyNames description

in my config file. However, I use swish-e as an embedded c-library from 
inside my c programm. When I do

char*	szchHelper = SwishResultPropertyStr ( qCookie-> swishHandle, 
result, "description" );

I get non-null empty string as a result instead of the content of html 
"description" meta tag. I have

META NAME="description" value="This is my home page."

on the page being indexed. Any ideas on how to extract the content of 
"description" meta tag?
