The best source of discussion and general information on electronic texts and
meta information (eg headers) is the Text Encoding Initiative
LISTSERV at UICVM.UIC.EDU (or LISTSERV at UICVM.BITNET). There is also a useful Web 
site. Although I don't have the URL to hand you can easily look it up on Yahoo.
