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 like 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.

You might occasionally see three other advanced tags for locating and interlinking documents 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 (refer to Hour 15, “Using Style Sheets”), but it can also theoretically be used to document an association between one Web page and another.
