    Both, Frontpage and Dreamweaver are WYSIWYG editors that are better used in code view, not the design view if you want proper results. And for the same reason there’s nothing about the code you posted as this isn’t really crucial for the display of the site.

    However, if I were you I would just remove most of the meta elements except of the content-type where you’d change the charset value to UTF-8.

    And don’t forget to use a strict doctype!

    Don't remove Content-Language, either (unless you have a lang attr. on your html element.)

    I would throw away Frontpage, and only use DW to help manage your files. Then learn the coding, because to make STRICT DOCTYPE requires a lot of practice and code understanding.

    That is my opinion on the matter. Code is only as good as the coder, regardless of what editor you use.

    Keep it in HTML 4.01 Strict, validate it and wipe out the infidelity.

    If it's really THAT bad, you'd be justified in using a Transitional DOCTYPE, here, if it's a pre-existing page.
