meta http-equiv form variants on your site

The following, which appear on your website and seem
to be a model for various other websites, vary:

<meta http-equiv="Content-type"
content="text/html;charset=UTF-8" />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type"
content="text/html;charset=utf-8" />
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;

The content values differ by 1 space, the charset
value is variously capitalized, and the http-equiv
value is variously capitalized. Assuming we apply the
convention that all should end in
space-slash-closing-angle-bracket, are all of these

The first two are from
as accessed Sep. 5, 2006, in reverse order; the third,
from http://www.w3.org/International/O-charset, as
accessed Aug. 31, 2006; the fourth, from
as accessed Aug. 31, 2006; and the last, from
as accessed Aug. 31, 2006, which also contained one
identical to the second, from a different source.

I take it the following, which I had been using
although I don't remember where I found or derived it,
is wrongly punctuated:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html"
charset="UTF-8" />

While I program in XHTML and did in HTML, perhaps
these are relevant to other W3C languages as well.

Thank you.
