If meta is being changed, should it be fixed to replace the name= hack with
arbitrary attributes?  This would also solve the display:none default.

Instead of:

<meta id="AndyQuote">
    <meta name="author">Andy Warhol</meta>
    <meta name="DC.Language">en-us</meta>
    <meta name="DC.Title">THE Philosophy of Andy Warhol</meta>
    <meta name="chapter">4 - Beauty</meta>
    <meta name="page">71</meta>
</meta>

You would write:

<meta	id="AndyQuote"	
		author="Andy Warhol
		DC.Language="en-us"
		DC.Title="THE Philosophy of Andy Warhol"
		chapter="4 - Beauty"
		page="71" 
/>
