Now that PICS is dead, I still need an easy way to tell users that my website is for mature audiences only. I intend to use PICS tags, but POWDER is said to be the new standard. Is it really used? And how do I set it up? Are there simple example XML files which I can copy for my own use?

Hmm, it appears that these standards are both somewhat dead. And I see why, I have no desire to help the content filter authors 'classify' my site. I merely want to tag not appropriate for minors so to avoid the attack of parent groups.

This tag seems to be what the majority of sites use:

<meta name="RATING" content="RTA-5042-1996-1400-1577-RTA" />

Adding to the answer above, that tag is not an example but a specific value proposed by Restricted to Adults (RTA) for tagging adult pages. Which is much simpler than both PICS and POWDER.
