Metadata: embedded or not?
On another forum, someone questioned me about the practice of embedding tags and other note metadata in the text of the note vs relying on the management software that I use for my Zettelkasten. I didn't have a conclusive answer. The questioner's issue with the practice was that the software application maintains a robust record of all the note metadata that I would embed in the note in YAML. But the counterargument is that embedding metadata as YAML allows the note to be more portable should I choose to use a different software application to manage my notes. I'm on the fence. Am I missing some other important argument for the practice?
