Is Meta element exposed/available in Object Model/API?

Jul 19, 2008 at 2:08 AM
In reviewing the OneNote xml spec (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa286798.aspx) there is a Meta element that can be used at multiple levels of the hierarchy to add custom content/properties to the xml content that will not be displayed in the user interface. I am planning to use this to store extra information to allow me to synchronize OneNote content to other systems.

Are these Meta tags part of the .NET OM? I haven't been able to identify them from looking in the code.

Similarly, in the COM object model, there is a FindMeta method on the ApplicationClass. Is this used to find the Meta tags in the OneNote xml content, or is it a more general use method?

The metadata nodes are simply nodes that OneNote itself do noes not.  It preserves them when the page is updated, but otherwise performs no operations on them.

The text importer at http://blogs.msdn.com/johnguin/archive/2007/04/30/customer-feedback-results-in-another-powertoy.aspx has some META data embedded in the page.  Check out the source code there.
