Adding META data to your HTML


One of the most useful HTML tags is META. This allows the document writer to include arbitrary metadata in an HTML document. A Typical usage of the META element is:

        <META NAME="author" CONTENT="Joe T. Slacker">

By specifying ``<META:CONTENT> $NAME'' in the translation table, this comes out as:

        author{15}: Joe T. Slacker

Using the META tags, HTML authors can easily add a list of keywords to their documents:

        <META NAME="keywords"  CONTENT="word1 word2">
        <META NAME="keywords"  CONTENT="word3 word4">
