    <Meta HTTP-EQUIV>
    The http-equiv attribute provides an HTTP header for the information in the content attribute.

    The http-equiv attribute can be used to simulate an HTTP response header.

    The value of the http-equiv attribute depends on the value of the content attribute.

    If the name attribute is set, the http-equiv attribute should not be set.

    <meta name>

    The <meta> tag provides metadata about the HTML document. Metadata will not be displayed on the page, but will be machine parsable.

    1>The keywords META tag is a META NAME tag because it has the word "name" in the code.

    2>EQUIV tags are rarer. The most common one is probably the Content-Type EQUIV tag.

    The difference between the two is that HTTP-EQUIV META tags define the header of an HTML document. This is a section of code that is sent to your browser before the rest of the page. It communicates to your browser certain introductory information about the page.
