Hi Michael,

Thank you, I could import all metadata from prepared file by the way you
gave me.

Next my question is how I can refer inside html file generated from pdf.

Each pdf file consists of a contents list(text) and jpg files of each page.
pfd2html generates each data and link from chapter in contents list to
that page
using anchar_name(<a name=xxx>) . I would like to refer chapter name and
specific page image in formatting. Is there some way to referee? or
Should I prepare separated data like demo collection?

Thank you for your help always.
