How can I implement Visual-Meta?

In principle implementing Visual-Meta into your document export system is simple: The Visual-Meta is appended to the document in a small (2 point usually), monospaced font (to eliminate ligature text parsing issues) on a new page(or pages if your document is quite long) after the main contents, wrapped into sections, starting after the wrapper: @{visual-meta-start} and ending with the closing @{visual-meta-end}

For specific implementation information, this is the page you want to have a look at: Visual-Meta Structure.

Implementation notes are suggested reading and a Visual-Meta example is available.

There are three degrees of valid Visual-Meta implementation:

  1. Core is intro text (crucial, not optional) plus the self-citation information in BibTeX form containing at least document title, author(s) names and date of publication (what the document would usually have on the download page in BibTex).
  2. Optional Metadata such as Headings, References, Glossary and so on.
  3. Custom where the publisher introduces Visual-Meta objects while also explaining what they are, for maximum useful openness.
