The author meta element is a special meta element that provides information about the author of the XHTML document. The author meta element must include the "name" attribute as, name="author". Here is an example:

<meta name="author" content="FYIcenter.com" />

XHMTL browsers are usually ignoring the author meta element. But some search engines are using the information provided in the author meta element.
