    Yep. That's easily fixed, though.

      #define PD_META_KEY_KEYWORDS "DC.subject"
      #define PD_META_KEY_SUBJECT "subject"

    And then over in xap_String_ID.h:

      dcl(META_KEY_KEYWORDS, "Keywords")
      dcl(META_KEY_SUBJECT, "Subject")

    The UI matches the usual expectations, and under the hood we still play
    nicely with the DC purists.

    Voila! A trivial hack that Just Works for everyone! :-)

    Great example, but Jeff's gonna give me some *very* well-deserved grief if I
    don't make sure everyone remembers to include "Hostetler" in examples like
