Each search engine system will only process the Meta tags it can understand, completely
ignoring the rest. Google, for instances, can read HTML, as well as XHTML style tags
(regardless of page-specific codes), and understands/ processes a whole list of tags.

attempting to use these specific tags as much as possible.
Naturally, it is always possible to add user/ other search engine-specific tags as well to further
promote recognition by other search engines.
