Describe metadata within an HTML document:
Metadata is information about data.
The <meta> tag provides metadata about the HTML document. Metadata will not be displayed on
the page, but will be machine parsable.
Meta elements are typically used to specify page description, keywords, author of the document,
last modified, and other metadata.
The <meta> tag always goes inside the head element.
The metadata can be used by browsers (how to display content or reload page), search engines
(keywords), or other web services.
The <meta> tag is supported in all major browsers.
In HTML the <meta> tag has no end tag.
In XHTML the <meta> tag must be properly closed.
Note: Metadata is always passed as name/value pairs.
DTD indicates in which HTML 4.01/XHTML 1.0 DTD the
attribute is allowed. S=Strict, T=Transitional, and F=Frameset.
