Educating the Browser

When you get right down to it, computers and browsers are stupid. All they know is what we tell them. A Web browser has no idea what a Web page is about, what came before it, and what comes next.

Meta data can help fill in some of the blanks, providing information such as copyright data, keywords, and descriptions. The <meta> tag goes in the <head> of your document and is used to describe the nature of the Web page. Some of these tags will be used directly by the browser if the visitor views information about the HTML file. However, meta data is most frequently used by search engines to help categorize Web pages.
