adding meta tags to dreamweaver pages

When creating pages from Dreamweaver templates, you assign editable areas to add content to. Dreamweaver automatically makes the page title editable, but I have not found a way to make adding meta tags editable other than hand editing the html.

When you create your Dreamweaver template, go into the html source code and manually add <!-- #BeginEditable "metatags" --> and <!-- #EndEditable --> just after the editable title tags. Your html should look something like this:

<!-- #BeginTemplate "/Templates/interior.dwt" --> <head>
<!-- #BeginEditable "doctitle" -->
<title> | search engines | meta tags | adding meta tags to dreamweaver pages</title>
<!-- #EndEditable -->
<!-- #BeginEditable "metatags" -->
<META NAME="description" CONTENT="Search Engine Optimization - meta tags and Dreamweaver templates">
<META NAME="keywords" CONTENT="dreamweaver templates search engines directories meta tags keywords description robots spidering indexing ranking listed listing faq spamming submitting paid submission software tips top search engines frames images flash Flash alt text doorway pages splash page"> <!-- #EndEditable -->

This way, you can add your meta tags manually, in the html source code, to each page created from a Dreamweaver template.
