> Document headers and footers in metadata
> ----------------------------------------
>                 Key: TIKA-1768
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1768
>             Project: Tika
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 1.13
>            Reporter: Aeham Abushwashi
>            Priority: Critical
>         Attachments: HeaderAndFooterTestFiles.zip, headers_footers.patch
> I have a use case where I need document headers and footers to be explicitly marked as such in Tika's output metadata fields. As far as I can see, there's no easy built-in way for doing this.
> The attached patch adds a HeaderFooterContentHandler which enables addition of headers and footers into their own metadata fields. This works out of the box with Word file formats.
> Also included in the patch are some tweaks to enable Excel and Powerpoint parsers/extractors to explicitly mark headers and footers as such in the output XHTML and
> enable the aforementioned content handler to spot them. Unit tests have been added, and existing ones modified, to verify that the parsers and the content handler work together correctly.
