Advanced Header Tags

The <meta /> tag can actually be used for a wide variety of purposes. You can use it to specify any information you want about the document, such as the author or a page ID number. How and why you do this is beyond the scope of this introductory book, and very few Web page authors ever use the <meta /> tag for anything other than making their pages easier to find on the Internet.

There are also three other advanced tags for locating and interlinking documents that you may occasionally see in the <head> section of Web pages. Two of them, <isindex> and <nextid>, are considered obsolete and are rarely used by Web page authors today. <link /> is most often used to link a style sheet to a Web page (see Hour 16, "Using Style Sheets" ), but can also theoretically be used to document an association between one Web page and another.
