I#ve thought about your suggestion to use Dublin Core. Maybe we should do

As this qualifier is optional we shouldn#t use it, because we don#t need
APH> * *Required elements*
APH> * Identifier
Ok, but we should use relative paths to the position of .docreg.
APH> * Title
APH> * Subject
APH> * Format
APH> * *Optional elements*
APH> * Description
APH> * Language
APH> * Creator
APH> * Contributor
APH> * Publisher
Well, I think, we shouldn#t support this tags. Instead we should only use
APH> * Date
APH> * Source
Do we need that? We#ve already <foo>copyright and README.debian.
APH> * Relation.IsFormatOf
I don#t need that. Will doc-base use that?
APH> * Relation.IsBasedOn
Ok, but it#s important for dhelp that this is used for translation links
APH> * Type
We should remove that. We#ve stored this information already in Subject.
APH> * Rights
We don#t need that -> <foo>/copyright.

I would suggest some changes.
APH> Identifier 80
Maybe to small? A lot of URLs may be longer.
APH> Title 80
Too big. The title should fit in one line of a WWW browser or a screen. I
would suggest <= 60.
APH> Subject 80 (multiple elements combined)
Markus, how long are the longest entries of DDH? We should support at
least tree entries in this line.
APH> Format 40
APH> Description 1024
I#m using that at the moment in dhelp. I would say that this is to much.
This could fill one page or screen. 512 are enough.
APH> Language 2
APH> Creator 200 (multiple elements combined)
APH> Contributor 200 (multiple elements combined)
APH> Publisher 200 (multiple elements combined)
<= 100 should be enough.
APH> Date 80
? 18-28-1998, I cound 10 characters.
APH> Relation.IsFormatOf 80
