You are absolutely right. I had looked at the Hypermail HTML output before and
thought it was all fine because the subject that it shows when reading it is
correct (not truncated), but the *title* tag is in fact truncated at 63
<title>Exports: [Export] rrixerces_dll, rrixerces_imp, rrixerces_h_cmd </title>
If the spec suggests a title shouldn't be > 64 characters, what's
the best way to handle this with swish-e? I don't know all the options well at
all, but maybe it is to use the meta name subject tag for just these Hypermail
archive searches instead?
<meta name="Subject" content="[Export] rrixerces_dll, rrixerces_imp,
rrixerces_h_cmd 7_2" />
I'm not sure how to do it, but I think it can be done. Does anyone have an
example of something like this? Also, I noticed index_hypermail.pl actually
replaces the title of the HTML output to the subject meta tag, so is that what
most people do to get around this problem (and/or is there some other reason
index_hypermail.pl was made)?
