At a new company now! smile.gif I noticed that our sites use <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7" /> which seems restrictive. Our top competitor uses <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> which is more in line with what I think we should be using.

Does this meta tag make any difference in how the robots spider the site or how it is viewed?

Major search engine crawlers will most likely ignore something like that.

Restrictive????

All it does is "tell" Internet Explorer 8 and above to emulate the IE7 rendering engine
