8. XHTML MP Generic Metadata

You can specify some generic metadata for your XHTML MP file using the <meta/> tag. The <meta/> tag should be enclosed within the <head></head> tags. A WAP browser will just ignore the metadata if it does not understand the metadata's meaning. You can specify metadata of any sort in an XHTML MP file without affecting the look of the page. For example, you may want to state the author name in your XHTML MP file but without displaying it on the screen.
