Your path should be:

I don't know JavaScript, but to me this row didn't look correct:
<meta name="keywords" content="<xsl:value-of select="/metaKey/keycontent"/>
As obviously there is one '>' missing.

But I don't succeed this without JavaScript too, because it says that I cannot use the variable "<xsl:value-of select=''>" in arguments... :(

So, is there a way I can dynamically set, for example, page content description?
