The META NAME="DESCRIPTION" CONTENT="???" tag is used for a
description of the document; Adam Di Carlo thus proposed to use the
content of the bookinfo/articleinfo abstract tag as description; he
also proposed to use the abstract tags of the sectioninfos (or
whatever) as description in the various files for chunked output.

I'd like to have the abstract of the documents in the META DESCRIPTION
tag because it makes it easy to index the content of a site (like for
a site map).

Sorry, I don't understand. I just grepped through the docbook
documentation for "user." but didn't find anything like that. Could
you give me a pointer please?
