Subject META revisited
Date Mon, 24 Feb 1997 16:23:05 GMT
A long, long time ago, I brought up the question of HTTP-EQUIV META tags. I
was told at the time that this is a client-side thing. However, this does not
appear to be the case. Firstly, the HTML 3.2 spec clearly says that this tag
should be used by servers, and secondly, Netscape at least do not process it at
the client end (as far as I can tell).

Standards-wise, this is somewhat unfortunate - should this really be in the
HTTP spec? Anyway, the question is, does anyone have any views? Should we
support this?
