There seems to be at least 2 ways (that I know of) to format meta names around the commas I have often wondered why. More importantly will some se's prefer one method over the other?

rayjam, I'm not clear about your question. Are you asking about using commas versus spaces in the contents section of the meta keywords tag? Something else?

Example: 1. <meta name ="description" content="your description here.">
or 2. <meta content="your description here." name=description>
and these versions could have been all in caps too.

I've always been taught example one here.

Yes, I agree. The first example is the standard, and as far as I know case sensitivity doesn't enter in to the picture. I don't know if the variations affect spiders or not, but holding to standards is the best bet. Anyone programming a spider would at least start there.

Yep Me too. But I still can't help wondering why ex. 2 exists. I have seen some sites rank very highly using ex. 2 Hence the question.
