Cool. I've updated the post, hopefully someone will find it useful.
Note that I've used both the verb and the noun form of create, modify
. In the Sigil forum, Valloric indicated he would support both. If that's no longer correct, let me know.
I checked the <meta>
tag at w3schools right after posting; you're correct. No way to sneak that in as an attribute.
But how about this?
<meta name="OPF.file-as" content="LastName, First Middle" />
You'd only need one, presumably, matching the primary creator. It's not perfectly to spec, though, as each creator
is allowed to have that attribute.
Or could OPF become a scheme? ie:
<meta name="DC.creator.aut" content="First Middle LastName" />
<meta name="DC.creator.aut" scheme="OPF:file-as" content="LastName First Middle" />
and name display are unlikely to get mixed up, you could have a double-entry for each creator
At this point, we've drifted beyond Sigil. I'm getting a little loopy, too.
