Thanks Jared.

I know they (meta elements) are specifically mentioned in WCAG 1.0, but I don't see anything in WCAG 2.0.

p.s. counting down the days to training at the end of august! Arriving on the 25th and spending a couple of days in advance touring around and squeezing in some golf.

The only related thing I can think of is defining the document
language (<html lang="en">). Defining the document type and character
set is also pretty important, though omitting these wouldn't be WCAG
