I am up-dating site using the same Dreamweaver programme that I always use but I have noticed that in my current site a couple of tags in the 'head' are different from those in my new up-dated files (which I have not launched yet).

My current files have:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<meta name="verify-v1" content="3oTIDRi+9HXOeVvEYcMebPecXm38rUlY03Tzq0fMxos=" />

My new files have simply:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

I don't know where the 'meta name verify' comes from (or what it does) as it is not contained within my new Dreamweaver docs' and the charset is different in my new files also ?

If I publish my new up-dated files without the 'verify' thing and charset=iso-8859-1 instead of utf 8 will this make any difference to anything ?

Thanks

I think that it has something to do with google sitemaps webtools. How it got there without you're knowing it I dont know. check out this link (http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=35659&topic=8509).

Ah, actually that was me.... I'd completely forgotten about that. But what about the different charset ?

You'd have to research the differences in charsets. I couldn't tell you off the top of my head.

Are you multilingual?

If the answer is no, it doesn't matter which charset is used.
If yes, you should use UTF-8.
