some metatags from the G11N perspective

here's a couple of maybe useful metatags from the G11N perspective. the CONTENT-TYPE might be getting ignored these days with mx (since mx itself ignores it) but probably shouldn't:
  • CONTENT-LANGUAGE <META HTTP-EQUIV="CONTENT-LANGUAGE" CONTENT="en-US,th-TH,fr"> primary human language (or languages) of this document. search engines may use this tag to categorize pages by language.
  • CONTENT-TYPE <META HTTP-EQUIV="CONTENT-TYPE" CONTENT="text/html; charset=UTF-8"> many folks recommend to always use this tag (for content type) and to specify the charset. while mx will ignore whatever values you have for this tag, i still include it out of habit. turns out some search engines may also examine this tag's values.
