What's New in Your HTML
Is there any kind of differnce in between these two or is attribute one kind of metadata?
metadata can describe attributes, and could be considered their children in some contexts. So the best way I can answer would be that an attribute provides functionality, while meta data might be better able to describe what that functionality actually is to the user or some other system that is reading off the attributes.
I hope that helps!
Metadata is — in its very simplest definition — data that describes data. For example, an HTML document is data, but HTML can also contain metadata in its <head> element that describes the document — for example who wrote it, and its summary.
An attribute extends a tag, changing its behavior or providing metadata. An attribute always has the form name=value (the attribute's identifier followed by its associated value).
