HTML <head> Section

The HTML head section separates metadata information from actual content of the document in the body section. It is created by the <head> tag, which is coded inside the html element at the top of the HTML structure. The head section must always contain a page title, which appears in the title bar of the web browser window. The head section may also contain other metadata tags.
