What is meta?
Here's how it works:

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I want to find questions that include a certain tag but exclude a separate, different tag.

For example, suppose I wanted to find and read all questions that include a javascript tag, but I don't even want to see any question from that set that includes a jquery tag.

How would I go about that?

Just use the - sign:

[javascript] -[jquery]
