Meta Tags

Meta elements are tags used in HTML or XHTML documents to provide structured metadata about a Web page. They are part of a web page's head section. Multiple Meta elements with different attributes can be used on the same page. Meta elements can be used to specify page description, keywords and any other metadata not provided through the other head elements and attributes.The meta element has two uses: either to emulate the use of an HTTP response header, or to embed additional metadata within the HTML document.With HTML up to and including HTML 4.01 and XHTML, there were four valid attributes: content, http-equiv, name and scheme.
