Intermixing DC and Item Type metadata

Does anyone have a good method for intermixing Dublin Core and Item Type metadata in an item record? I’d like to reorder the fields in my Oral History records so that some of the Item Type fields are appearing near the top of the record, rather than being displayed after all the DC elements.

In general you’d do this intermixing by replacing the code in the theme that prints all the metadata (all_element_texts) with individual calls to metadata in the order you want to print each element… it can result in a lot more code if you have a lot to print.

You could also just alter a few elements that you want at the top, print those specifically with metadata at the top of the page, and then hide them with the Hide Elements plugin: this way you can keep the all_element_texts call for printing the “rest” of the metadata.
