Recording qualified Dublin Core metadata in HTML meta elements

2000-08-15, The Dublin Core Metadata Element Set (DCMES) allows much descriptive information about resources to be expressed.

A method for refining DCMES is encompassed in an extended model known as Qualified Dublin Core metadata, which requires additional labels and data, known generically as qualifiers. In this recommendation, we describe the methods provided directly by HTML, and explain how to record Qualified DCMES metadata in HTML using the meta element in the document head.
