Hi All,

I have a listing of feature classes and raster datasets that I want to access their metadata for creating a reference spreadsheet and customised html webpage.

Metadata elements I would like to access are description, summary, abstract, and extents for starters, and this will change if I determine a different stylesheet.

From arcpy / python, how do I access the metadata values to make them into individual variables for manipulation.
