Meta Tags FrontPage

What is the ramification of omitting these meta tags FrontPage automatically
adds?

<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 5.0">
<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">

Thank you!

<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">

This one identifies your page as contining US English text.
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 5.0">
<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">

The two are informational only. They identify the page as
coming from FrontPage. If you don't want FrontPage to
create them, choose Tools, Page Options, Authoring, and
clear Generator And ProgId Tags.
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type"
content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">

This one reinforces the fact that the file contains HTML,
and states the character set the browser should use to
display it.
Thank you!

Now, I have a question for you. What's the harm in leaving
these in place?

There is no harm in leaving them, it's just that if there is no need for it,
why have it? "Less is more."
Thank you for the information.
