[LON-CAPA-users] Meta data in the source code?

Okay. So this seems to work. However, if there is some meta data already
present, uploading a new source file doesn't overwrite existing meta data.
Is there some way to force overwrite of the meta data from the parameters in
the source file?

Yep, you can use the <meta>-tag inside the source code:

<meta name="subject" content="Capacitance" />
<meta name="keywords" content="capacitance,capacitor,charge,current" />
<meta name="title" content="Discharging a Capacitor" />
<meta name="abstract" content="Time it takes to discharge a capacitor  
to a certain percentage of its initial charge" />
<startouttext />A capacitor of ...

On publication, the information is transfered to the meta-file.
