Span tag Problems

I do not understand why.

I am getting some bloated Frontpage code adding a span tag around anything in a cell. I Opened the page in Frontpage 2003, Expression, and Dreamweaver. Frontpage and Expressions both kept up with a span tag in the existing page, while Dreamweaver did not add a span tag.

When I create a new page in expressions and make a table, I do not get any span tags added in.

Three cells in a row looked like this.

<td><span lang="en-us">Keyword 1</span></td>
<td><span lang="en-us">Keyword 2</span></td>
<td><span lang="en-us">Keyword 3</span></td>

Can anyone help? I am getting a little bored hand editing all the HTML pages.

Could it have anything to do with improper CSS and a DOC Type?

After a long time of searching with no results I noticed something was missing from the head of the html template.

<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">

Once I added this code back in, the span tag problem went away.
