If we add the content attribute then we should really add all attributes from the meta-data
attribute collection (see

The meta-data module is one scheduled to be included with the move to XHTML so I see no problem
with this attribute being added, but do we need it? According to the XHTML spec, if the content
attribute is missing from a meta element then the elemets contents are assumed to be its content
(see above linked page).  That is how things are working at the moment.

So do we need this patch? I'd prefer to see all the attributes on the above page added, rather
than just some of them, but then if you have a strong use case I see no problem with it.
