Description

Meta tags contain information about the document, primarily for search engines and for embedding HTTP headers in the document.

Metadata (as this is commonly called) is information about a document. The table of contents for this book is one example of metadata for this book. Metadata is such a huge topic that it would literally require another Developer's Dictionary to cover it. The best reference listing META values I am aware of is http://vancouver-webpages.com/META/. (If that reference isn't enough for you, there are plenty of links at http://dmoz.org/Computers/Data_Formats/Markup_Languages/HTML/Tutorials/Meta_Tags/.)
