This is from an old thread, but ...

        So, I can add a tag like <meta name="language" content="italian">
and have htdig store it somewhere. And if I have both, let's say french and italian
documents indexed in my db's, how can I force a search to output ONLY french OR
italian documents ? I can increase the meta_description_factor, but how do this
parameter interfere in the search process.

>You can also add more support for <meta> tags by editing the file.

        Am I right ? In this file, I can tell htdig to index a document that
contains a language ( specified in a meta tag ), and follow the indexing process,
and finally ending with two databases, one with french documents, one with
italian documents ???
