Syntax

profile="uri"

Description

The profile attribute is intended to work in conjunction with the meta element (and, in particular, the scheme attribute of that element) to provide a machine-parsable set of rules, most likely in XML format. When presented with a meta element, the user agent can read the contents of the profile referred to in the head to gain a clear understanding of the information contained in the meta’s content attribute.

Example

This example shows a link to a profile XML file in the site’s root directory:

<head profile="core-defs.xml">

Value

This attribute takes as its value the URI of the profile document.
