  • These are meta tags.
    System Variariables (instructions to the browser about how to render the page):
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

    In the dialogue for this example,  Name is Content-Type, Value is   text/html; charset=utf-8

    User Variables (usually information ABOUT the page)
    <meta name="author" content="Ronx" />
     In the dialogue, name and value are self explanantory.
