Meta tags versus http-equiv meta tags


G

Guest

I originally created my site in FP2002, specifying my meta tags (title,
keyword, description). Why I upgraded to FP2003, when I do a PAGE PROPERTIES,
I have two choices for inputing tags. If I do it under the GENERAL option, it
puts them in as straight meta tags. If I do it under the CUSTOM option, it
puts them in as meta http-equiv tags.

What is the difference between the two. Should I go through all my pages,
strip out all the metta http-equiv and put in straight meta tags?

I see this and they look fine to me:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;
charset=windows-1252">
<title>French Property, Services and Information</title>
<meta name="keywords" content="French property">
<meta name="description" content="Information on France, living in
France, and French Property. Everything from weather to wine to tax.">
<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 6.0">
<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
