        The only reason I asked is because the standard hypermail works generates html files that contains the indextype...

        Well, I know not everyone would need this, or any META tag for that matter. So having them as optional would be a good idea. As to what the Description should have... Good question. Ideally a short description of said message - which, in the real world, there is no application that can do that.

        What about leaving this open for discussion? Or make yet another cookie, one that contains the actual message body. That way people can pick whether they want the subject, the author, or the message body... Oh wait, that'll also just about double the size of each message. Ok, so let's start with the subject line...

        Anyone else have any suggestion for a Description META tag?
