PDF Metadata

User Guide / PDF Output

Prince creates PDF metadata from the content of the XHTML metadata elements. The content of the <title> element is used for the document title, while the <meta> element can be used to specify the document author, subject, keywords, date, and generator application:


<title>Cooking with Cabbage</title>
<meta name="author" content="John Smith"/>
<meta name="subject" content="An interesting book about food"/>
<meta name="keywords" content="cabbage, cooking, eating"/>
<meta name="date" content="2009-04-01"/>
<meta name="generator" content="MyReportingApp"/>

(Note that in Prince 8.1 it is only possible to create PDF metadata when formatting XHTML documents. The ability to create PDF metadata for arbitrary XML documents may be added to a future version of Prince).
