You'll need to set up a script to post-process your output HTML files before they're uploaded to the server. It's a bit of a hassle - is there a specific reason you don't want those tags in there?

I would also be interested in learning how to implement a "script to post-process your output HTML files before they're uploaded to the server". I want to remove the Fog Creek meta tags to reduce the likelihood of competitors being able to reverse engineer my SEO network.

Maybe a tool like BKReplacEm - a regular expression based search & replace tool that can run on a whole directory - can be used on site creation. I don't know that this specific tool will do what you want (i.e. run silently from a command line) but it can certainly do a search & replace of the fog creek tags if you can set up the proper regular expression search & replace.

(I'm sure a regular expresion guru could chime in on the proper search string).

According to the help file it can run from the command line, and exit once it's done. :-)

Oh..... it should be easy. Just put in a proprietary tag of some sort after the Title tag.

The have it replace everything between (and including)

</title>
and
<proprietary tag>

and replace it with just

</title>

If I had my RegEx Oreilly book I'd help you out.
