While browsing a site, I came to know the following strange code implementations:

<input type="hidden" name="client" value="pub-#*$!#*$!"></input>
<input type="hidden" name="forid" value="1"></input>
<input type="hidden" name="ie" value="ISO-8859-1"></input>
<input type="hidden" name="oe" value="ISO-8859-1"></input>
<input type="hidden" name="safe" value="active"></input>
<input type="hidden" name="cof" value="GALT:#008000;GL:1;DIV:#336699;VLC:663399;AH:center;BGC:FFFFFF;LBGC:336699;ALC:0000FF;LC:0000FF;T:000000;GFNT:0000FF;GIMP:0000FF;FORID:1;"></input>

google_ad_client = "pub-#*$!xxx";
google_ad_width = 180;
google_ad_height = 60;
google_ad_format = "180x60_as_rimg";
google_cpa_choice = "CAAQu7LzzwEaCApO8vh27BCfKLW193M";

Why G codes are within input tag and what is google_cpa_choice and _as_rimg ad format?
The site has just PageRank 2 and little content. I don't think it is a premier publisher to implement those special codes, if any.

Many publishers have more than one site and this could just be a new site setup by a premium publisher. Also from time to time Google asks publishers to test specific new features before making them available to everyone. You don't necessarily have to be a premium publisher to be a beta tester.
