Is it work including a meta tag to show the browsers that a website is compatible with and if so how do I go about laying out a tag to reflect the individual browsers?

Nope, there is no meta tag to fix cross-browser compatibility. You need to bake that into the design as you build the site. And it's a lot easier to do that today than just a few years ago.

You may be thinking about the meta elements for setting the appropriate compatibility level in Internet Explorer, for example:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=9">
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7">


But this is not a universal tool, it is IE-specific (IE7 and above). As such these meta elements will have no effect in any other browser.

there are php scripts available that can detect the browser and you could have adapted css for ie and then a standard css file for most other browsers..
