HTML Best Practice: Get your HEAD in order (via: Eric Law; IEInternals on MSDN Blogs)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/08

Even though 3 years old, this is still relevant. Thanks Ilya Grigorik for pointing me at it.

Make sure your HTML HEAD tag has the elements in the below order:

  • any charset must come first (UTF-8 works best) though even better is to specify this in your http header,
  • any any x-ua-compatible comes second.

Why? Read Best Practice: Get your HEAD in order – IEInternals – Site Home – MSDN Blogs.

So the document element starts like this:

<doctype>
<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv content-type charset>

<meta http-equiv x-ua-compatible>

            <base>
<title, favicon, comments, script blocks, etc>
