Description The quality of digital mathematical library depends on the formats and quality of data it offers. We show several enhancements of (meta)data of the Czech Digital Mathematics Library DML-CZ. We discuss possible minimalist modification of regular LaTeX documents that would simplify generating basic metadata that describes the article in an XML/MathML format. We also show a proof of concept of a method that enables us to include LaTeX source code of mathematical expressions into pdfTeX-generated PDFs in such a way that the reader can Copy & Paste the code from his PDF viewer. This code, hidden in the PDF file, can also be used for LaTeX math indexing.
