Chapter 7. Utilizing Head Content > How Head Content Works

How Head Content Works

A standard HTML page contains a <head> tag and a <body> tag. The body contains all the page content that will actually display in the browser window. The head contains a variety of information that won’t display (at least, not directly), although it can be accessed to determine how the page will be handled. Some head content will be accessed by the browser; some will be accessed by other programs, such as server software, search engines, and validation software; some might not be accessed at all, except by humans who might view or edit the code. The W3C specifies several elements that a well-formed head section could use. Unfortunately, the browsers have not yet fully implemented them all, so we can’t take full advantage of the head.

Table 7.1 lists the standard head elements, along with a brief description of each.
