Using Metadata field for JavaScript

I created a Dynamic Metadata text field named javascript and included the following in the Template:

The user would put in JS without the script tags. I tried this and the JS is not showing on the page in "view source".

I also tried just: <system-page-javascript/> where the user put in the entire script.

Am I missing a step?

    The system-page-* tags are predetermined within the system. The tags that you are referencing simply do not exist. To gain access to the content that you are looking for, you'll want to find the XML node called "dynamic-metadata" in the page XML that has a node with name you supplied when you created the dynamic field.

    An example structure you might see in the page XML is as follows:

        <value>my value</value>

    Please note that if you multiple dynamic-metadata fields, you will have multiple dynamic-metadata nodes and not multiple name/value combinations inside a single wrapper.

    You will traverse the page XML and render the content the same way you do for formatting structured data for a data definition.
