Hello all,

I am wondering if anyone is using a good Dublin Core template on the  
Web in your Info Org classes. I used to use the Nordic Metadata  
Project Template, but it's no longer available/working. I have tried a  
few others, but none are as straightforward and uncluttered as the  
Nordic template.

Any ideas? Has anyone created their own?
