Add HTML with meta tags

Hi All,

First off, i just love Calibre !

I am working on making a set of ebooks with my favorite articles from Smashing Magazine by ripping the data from the site and saving it in html via php.

After that i add the page as book in Calibre. All works well, but since i have a lot of pages to do i would like to have set the meta tags automaticly, preferably from within the html page.

Is there a way to do this ?

Second: would love a feature in Calibre to just enter a url of a page and Calibre makes a ebook of it.

Regards, Erwin

calibre reads metadata from html files.

Put

<!--TITLE="dfsdsf"-->
<!--AUTHOR="vsvorv"-->
Similarly for publisher and isbn

Thank you for the reply.

Can't find what i am doing wrong, but with the tags inside the <head> or inside <body> both no results after import from html (saved page from firefox, tags are present in file, 1:1 copy of your lines). Using latest version of Calibre.

How about the feature request ?
