When i have the web page rendered on the browser, i don't want the zoom in zoom out feature.
If i click on the 'Zoom in' feature, the page zooms.
Can this be avoided by setting any meta tags?

You can use the HandheldFriendly meta tag or set the default zoom level. Please see this link.

I had tried using the meta tags
<meta name="HandheldFriendly" content="true" />
<meta name = "viewport" content="width=device-width,height=device-height" />
but the browser is still zooming the page when I tap in the area that doesnt have links.
I dont want the page to be Zoomed at any cost.
Have a nice day

I see Navaneeth has been persistant in looking for help on this issue. Since I've found a potential workaround for zooming when clicking I'm responding to this thread in case some of you have email notification turned on.
I haven't had any luck with the HandeldFriendly tag or specifiying the device width. The only thing that seems to work is making the button a link and including href="#".
I don't yet know how robust this is. Using href="#" stopped the zooming in my test, but had the side effect of jumping to the top of the page when the button was clicked. Adding return false to the onclick stopped the jumping.
Here's an example of the link attributes.
<a onclick="function($parameter); return false;" href="#">
If anyone finds places where this doesn't work or better solutions please reply.

Could you provide the version of the Operating system you are using where you are seeing these meta tags being ignored.
That should help us narrow down the issue and possible work arounds.
