Metadata is machine understandable information for the web. The W3C Metadata Activity addressed the combined needs of several groups for a common framework to express assertions about information on the Web, and was superceded by the W3C Semantic Web Activity.
W3C's Metadata Activity addressed the needs of PICS, DSig, P3P, and CC/PP.
The primary work in this activity was the Resource Description Framework.
