It appears that somewhere, someone turned on English language specification on my web site. I have a page (which is a dynamic page, so it effects thousands of pages) which has:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">

added at the top. The real <head> is below that.

I have been looking through IIS and can not find anything which would add this code to the page.

We use FrontPage to push the web site changes to the web server, and I know there are some language settings in Front Page, but none of them are set on English.

This of course creates invalid HTML and could sabatage my rankings.... please help!

Are you sure this isn't in a script or template somewhere? I know IIS can add HTTP headers and an HTML footer automatically, but I don't know if there is a way to do this for a header (unless it's an ISAPI filter or similar).
