This example adds meta tags to the head of an HTML document to display a smart edit button on the toolbar as of Internet Explorer 5. Because the ProgID meta tag is associated with the programmatic identifier of Word, the button displays the Word icon. When you click the button, Internet Explorer loads the document into Word using the specified document template.

<META NAME="ProgID" CONTENT="word.document">
<META NAME="Template" CONTENT="C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\">



The NAME attribute typically is assigned one of the preceding well-defined values, but any arbitrary value can be specified. Custom tools can be developed to perform special actions on documents containing arbitrary meta tags. To enable the smart edit features in Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 or later, add a meta tag to the head of the document. Associate ProgID with the NAME attribute, and associate the programmatic identifier of the desired editor with the CONTENT attribute. If the specified editor is not installed or properly registered on the user's system, the edit button is not displayed. Consult the documentation of your editor to determine its programmatic identifier.
