Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] ePub: meta information

On the DocBook side, the following reference to a page in the DocBook 4.2 
specification lists the DocBook equivalents for Dublin Core metadata 


If you also need to use Dublin Core qualifiers, then there are attributes on 
those elements that cover most of the qualifiers listed in the original 
Dublin Core Qualifiers document.

You'd have to investigate how the epub stylesheet handles these.
