ISSUE-127: Exclusivity of name attribute

Exclusivity of name attribute

State:
CLOSED
Product:
html

Description:
4.2.5 The meta element
http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/semantics.html#the-meta-element

There is a sentence:

--
Exactly one of the name, http-equiv, and charset attributes must be specified.
--

I don't understand why 'name' is mutually exclusive with http-equiv and charset. I also don't see how http-equiv can be limited to a single occurrence, since in theory it can be used for multiple HTTP header values??

Never mind. I get it. Each <meta> can have exactly one payload at a time.
