When in doubt, I prefer to skip jargon uses and go for the base
language. Terms like metatarsal, metamorphosis and metaprotein
have neither spaces nor hyphens, so unless you're dealing with a
term that really is two words (example: a meta tag), I'd go with
that scheme.

Is it meta data?
Or Meta data?
Or meta-data?
Or Meta-data?
Or metadata?

I know, I can pick one and use it consistently, but I'm wondering whether
there's a good reason to prefer one format over the others. Several Web
sites I've checked are inconsistent in their use.
