Closing XHTML 'meta' Tags

Q

What Is wrong with my <meta> Tags?

A

If you are converting existing HTML documents to XHTML format, you may find some <meta> tags are written as:

<meta name="Author" content="FYICenter.com">
<meta name="Description" 
  content="Tutorials, FAQs and Tips on XHTML Documents."> 
<meta name="Keywords" 
  content="XHTML Tutorials, FAQs, Tips">

But all those <meta> tags are invalid in a XHTML document. They must be closed as:

<meta name="Author" content="FYICenter.com"/>
<meta name="Description" 
  content="Tutorials, FAQs and Tips on XHTML Documents."/> 
<meta name="Keywords" 
  content="XHTML Tutorials, FAQs, Tips"/>

Note to HTML document authors: <meta> tag syntax in XHTML is the opposite to <meta> tag syntax in HTML. In XHTML, meta tag must be closed. But in HTML, meta tag can not be closed.
