I just meant normal meta tags. You must excuse my ignorance I have been
dropped in at the deepend by a web designer that has gone AWOL!.

I meant

<meta  name="keywords" content="test, test, test" />

gets parsed into my HTML doc as

<meta content="test, test, test" name="keywords">

i understand this now after many hours however it does not seem to be
particularly helpful to me as any raw HTML doc i put the tag on it works
fine. However when parsed and the attributes are reversed then they seem to
be ignored.

This one is way out of my hands!

I know! Tell me is it possible to send cocoon a html stream or string and
instruct it just to leave it alone? This would be a workaround as I can
never see the add publisher ever fixing their bug.
