Subject [greenstone-users] [ Re: Displaying multiple metadata valuesindividually?]
I guess now we found a common basis for the discussion :-). I think the
header of the mails for the discussion might be misleading. It should
probably include something like "dynamic generation of query links from
metadata with multiple values" (at least I think that is what Chaitra
was trying to implement in her collection)...

To conclude I think that "For" loop statements for handling metadata
could be a very nifty feature of greenstone in the future...
