If you are able to have your server send a Content-Type header, with a charset, these meta tags are superfluous:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
The Content-Type server header has presedence over the meta tags, so if the server header is already set, these meta tags do nothing. If the server header says something else as the meta tag, the browser responds to the server header, not the meta tag.
I think these meta tags are way overused. I personally don't want people to save my pages locally, so having the meta tags there for that reason is not good enough for me.
