typical HTTP-EQUIVs are 'Expires', 'Keywords', 'Reply-To'. You should be careful not to use information that will be provided by the server (date, server name, last modified date, etc.).
You can specify the NAME attribute and most servers will attempt to determine the equiv from the type of content (not always successfully).
Makes a hypertext link to the named item. If the protocol is missing, The HTML browser will assume file:. If the hostname is missing, the HTML browser will assume that the link is to the same host as the current URL.
Although Mosaic doesn't care whether the name is quoted, this behaviour can not be guaranteed for all HTML browsers.
link to a text file
If the leading "/" is omitted, the named file will be assumed to be relative to the current URL.
Your browser will recognise HTML files automatically, provided that the file has a ".html" extension [".htm" for Windoze].
Note Relative references can't be used when imagemaps are used

All tags in HTML have a corresponding terminator. For <IMG>, its terminator is technically </IMG>. It is probably best not to use this terminator as recent versions of Mosaic interpret </IMG> as an in-line image that doesn't exist.
Note the image name should be quoted. Although Mosaic may not care whether quotes are present, this behaviour can not be guaranteed in other other HTML browsers.
