If it's an XHTML document it should be <meta name="foo" content="bar" />.

I am trying to validate my homepage using the W3C HTML Validator. Below is 
my html source codes :

<head>
<title>New Page 1</title>
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0">
<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
<meta name="Keywords" content="Mrs Yip's Homepage, genesiswong_2000, Tang 
Dynasty, IKEA">
<meta name="Description" content="This is Mrs Yip Yen Chin personal 
webpages">
</head>

The following is the error reported by W3C validator:

Line 9, column 0:
  <meta name="Description" content="This is Mrs Yip Yen Chin personal we ...
  ^
Error: start tag was here

Line 10, column 6:
  </head>
        ^
Error: end tag for "META" omitted, but its declaration does not permit this

What's wrong?  META generalise syntax is <META NAME="Description" 
content="x"> and <META NAME="Keywords" content="x">.  META information 
reside within <HEAD></HEAD>.

Thnk for your help.
