Technically PICS info must exist in the "headers" of the HTTP
request/reply...  So the answer is no, if the META tag does not exist in
the <HEAD> where the DTD says it MUST be, an HTTP server or a WWW browser
may refuse to honor it (and I wish they would; refer to reports at
http://199.120.83.179/~moreese/msiebugs for more info)
