HTTP requests and responses messages contain a section for headers. This header information is "about" the request(or response) and is called meta information.
I posted a simple JSP page that shows what headers are sent by the browser in a request. Check it out here.
HTH,
Paul.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
