Why don't we learn anything about the meta tag?

I've watched trough this HTML course, but I don't know how to use the meta tag. Where do I learn about the meta tag?

I'll never read it all in my lifetime. But the part about robots was interesting.

To theSmartGuy,

Are you talking about these meta tags?

    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
    <title>Choose One</title>
    <meta name="description" content="text">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">

Those tags, along with a full HTML page of markup, have been validated by W3C markup service.

There's more here.

Does that answer your question?


Here's a start meta
