Found these meta tags on a top ranking page. Any ideas of their relevance?

Put there by some html editor. Never heard of a SE that would even look at such tags. Only non-standard tags that I've heard are looked at, are Front page author tags so that Excite and Inktomi can properly handle the non-standard html.

These are "Dublin Convention" meta tags, a standard which hasn't come off very well in the States but is widely being used by European search engines, especially the German ones.

Interesting, I never knew they were being adapted by any SE's. It would be nice if they were to do so state side. One of these days, I'm going to have to find time to educate myself about the Euro engines - sure is a different game over there.

Until then, we will continue to disect Fantomasters brain.
