    Talking What are the meta descriptions for?


    I write the Meta Description in the following way :

    HTML Code:
    <meta name="Description" content="*">
    But, what's the following for, then :
    HTML Code:
    <meta http-equiv="Description" content="*">


    WHY ARE THERE TWO AND WHAT'S THE USE OF THIS?

    thx,

    The second one is the equivalent of setting a page header command in a server side script before sending the page to the browser but only works for some page header commands.
