[thelist] Google Webmaster Tools Verification

Google tells me to verify my website by putting the following META Tag
into my index page.

<META name="verify-v1" content="removed=" />

However the web page now doesn't validate, stating:

This page is not Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional!
        Line 6 column 11:
        there is no attribute "name".

Solution? Can I remove the attribute name and replace with "id", which
would work, but will it screw google up when it looks to validate
against the meta tag via the name attribute?
