    Newbie warning. What are the differences between
    META NAME and META HTTP-EQUIV? What are
    their purposes? How are they used -- by search
    engines? Thanks in advance.

    The META element
    http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/global.html#edef-META

    but avoid http-equiv. use the server to send HTTP headers.

    > How are they used -- by search engines?


    they are used by anything that supports them. how they are used
    depends on what the recipient wants to do with them.
