3.2 Head Section and Content Type Meta Tag

The first line in the head section is <head> The last line will be the closing tag </head>

In-between can be a large variety of meta tags to inform search robots, RDF schema, and link statements. We will use the basics.

First add a meta tag for "Content-Type"-- notice in XHTML we have to use a space and the / to close the tag, also anything after the = are encased in quote marks:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="application/xhtml+xml; charset=iso-8859-1" />

Most hosting has application/xhtml+xml enabled by default on their server. If you run into any problems, get in contact with your hosting Administrator. Or switch to a server that does support this, if their software is that old, it's a major security risk.

Another solution can be to make a text file called .htaccess and place it in the root of your site that includes the statement: "AddType application/xhtml+xml htm/html" (without the quote marks). Many sites already have this file, so just edit the file and add this statement.
