I don't see any HTML code below the URLs. What I see are document excerpts
which have the HTML tags stripped out. If you're expecting htsearch to
show the meta description in its place, you must set use_meta_description
in htsearch's config file. In no case will htsearch ever display the
meta keywords, but it will match pages that contain the search words in
meta keywords tags.
