I originally built the site with Word
That's the answer. Word adds all sorts of junk to your code, which is why I'm sure you will find several other instances of code bloat.
As far as I know, you should be able to remove those tags, as they are not valid HTML anyway, and not used by the SEs. They are used by Word internally when (and if) editing your site with Word.
But, you may want someone else to confirm this anyway.
I have assumed that my great placement in Google was the result of a manual entry by them, as the invalid <0:description> tag I have, is shown in Google's search results as something else.
