Subject: Dewey Decimal Web Search Protocol

I have a suggestion for how seperate the wheat from chaff during internet
searches.  Web page designers can simply say the word "Dewey" or "LOC"
once on their page and follow it with the appropriate Dewey decimal system
and/or Library of Congress card catalog number.<snip>Search engines would
be used to search for the exact phrase (Dewey and/or LOC
numbers).<snip>Combine this with the techniques already being used.<snip>

Or, how about making it a meta tag <meta name="dewey" content="600.019,
