HTML Tutorial - Advanced Tags

                                                                                                                     Page 1 of 1


This section discusses some advanced tags, which empowers the author to enhance the web page further.

Meta Tag

The <meta> tag provides some unusual information about the web page. This information includes description and keywords for search engines and refresh rates. The meta tag is placed inside the head tags of an HTML document. This tag has to be closed by putting a backslash (/) at the end of the tag.

Attributes of Meta Tag


Content defines the information to be associated with other attributes like http-equiv or name. It takes up some text as its value.



<meta name=”keywords” content=”HTML, XHTML” />


Http-equiv connects the content attribute to an HTTP header. It takes up the values- content-type, expires, refresh.


<meta http-equiv=”refresh” content=”5” />


 Name connects the content attribute to a name. It takes up the values- author, description, keyword, generator, and revised.


<meta name=”description” content=” Web based tutorial on HTML” />

This is a variable

Note: The reason meta tags used to be so important was because search engines relied on them to build a profile of a web page.

The following example illustrates a web page using the meta tag:

(This web page is the same registration web page shown in the forms chapter. It just includes the meta tag.)
