Title is actually the ex.Title metadata, which is automatically extracted
(if any) by plugins. Therefor [Title] or [ex.Title] in a format statement
means the same thing. dc.Title is the Title element of the dublin core
metadata set, which is normally manually assinged, for example, by the
collection creator.

[parent:Title] is the value of the extracted title (ex.title) of the
immediate parent section
Likewise, [parent:dc.Title] is the value of dc.Title of the immediate
parent section

1. Greenstone can use the qualified dublin core metadata set (or other
metadata sets, even your own one):
In the Enrich panel -> click "Manage Metadata Sets" -> click "Add" ->
select "[Title] or [ex.Title], therefore, in a format statement means the
same thing. dublin core metadata element set" from the "available
Metadata Sets" list -> click "add", then it will be added into the table
(on the right hand side of the Enrich panel) where the metadata values can
be entered.

2. Then the metadata elements of qualified dc can be used in a way as
other metadata elements are, for example, [dc.Title^Alternative]

3. You can create your own metadata set using GEMS.
In the gli directory, run gems.bat or gems.sh.
Or In the Enrich panel -> click "Manage Metadata Sets" -> click "Add" ->
click "New".

4. The available metadata sets are stored in GSDLHOME/gli/metadata

That will be great.
