Well, I'm not sure it is worth to do so much work. I expected it was easy to 
achieve my goal (in other words, I expected to be able to use meta elements 
inside header elements in my xml sources). If it is not the case I can live 
with the current situation.

Right, @content is not defined so I assumed that #PCDATA in
<meta @someattr..>#PCDATA</meta>
would be used somehow as @content. But apparently it is not. This is why I 
don't know how to use <meta/> tags.

Thanks for your suggestions.
