   I assume it should still be SGML.

Ah yes, you clipped the part where I said, "not being an SGML adept...".

   Then neither of the two syntaxes is
   any good.  The second isn't even valid SGML.  A better way would be to
   declare PURPOSE as NAMES.  Then it can be a list of names.  Attribute
   value lists in SGML are written without comma, only white-space
   separate the list items.

   You are in a twisty little maze of URLs, all alluring.

This would be, then, <meta purpose="index header" ...>?  At any rate, I'll
bow out to your expertise on the details, here...
