Readme for the XMP include package (xmpincl.sty)

The XMP (eXtensible Metadata platform) is a framework to add metadata to
digital material to enhance the workflow in publication. References are
given below, but the essenence is that the metadata is stored in an XML
file, and this XML stream is then embedded in the file to which it

How you create this XML file is up to you, but I started investigating
this, because I wanted to embed some licensing information in the files
I create. The license I chose is one of the Creative Commons licenses,
and their web-site offers this information in a valid XML-file, suitable
for direct inclusion.




This release requires pdflatex.


Run xmpincl.ins through tex. This will generate the package file
xmpincl.sty. Store this file in a location where it will be found by
pdflatex. The documentation can be obtained by running xmpincl.dtx
though pdflatex.

xmp­incl – In­clude eXten­si­ble Me­ta­data Plat­form data in pdfLaTeX

The XMP (eXten­si­ble Me­ta­data plat­form) is a frame­work to add meta­data to dig­i­tal ma­te­rial to en­hance the work­flow in pub­li­ca­tion. The essence is that the meta­data is stored in an XML file, and this XML stream is then em­bed­ded in the file to which it ap­plies. How you cre­ate this XML file is up to you, but the au­thor started in­ves­ti­gat­ing this be­cause he wanted to em­bed li­cens­ing in­for­ma­tion in the files he cre­ated. The li­cense the au­thor chose is one of the Creative Com­mons li­censes, and their web-site of­fers this in­for­ma­tion in a valid XML-file, suit­able for di­rect in­clu­sion.
