Instructions for inserting the compulsory metadata

Each descriptive element has a NAME attribute and a CONTENT attribute in the following format:

<meta name="Keywords" content="European Commission, institutions, European Union, EU">

All metadata can have multiple values, except "REFERENCE"; "DESCRIPTION" and "DATE". The syntax for listing multiple values is always the same, i.e. separation by commas.
