Default Meta tags

Hi there

Bit of a strange one maybe but does anyone know how to hide the meta data on a page if someone views the source?

many thanks

Adam

You can't hide the source or parts of it. You may be able to use a separate JS file to write the META tags so its not immediately obvious what they are but that doesn't really stop anyone seeing it, they would just need to look at you JS file. Also, it would probably defeat the object of having the META tags in there in the first place, for example search robots wouldn't see them.

I wouldn't say that. It effectively stops search engines from seeing it. :D
