The authoriser.html file contains the website's content authoriser's position and a link to their email address.

The maintainer.html file contains the website maintainers position or branch area and a link to their email address.

The meta.html file contains the site metadata which holds keywords and descriptive text used for search engine optimisation. More information can be found in the advanced section on Metadata and Searchability.

The nav.html file contains a bulleted list of all the page headings listed in the navigation menu on the left-hand side of the website, including sub-pages.

The site-title.html file allows you to change the text shown in your website pagehead but that is also displayed in both the browser toolbar at the top of the screen and in the tab at the top of the webpage (see example below). On this site, the site title is 'University Web Guide'.
