    As far as the question ... are those two lines of code needed in the HTML for a web site?

    Definitely not. The only thing that I could imagine that they would be used for on the web is that it let's others know that the site was generated using FrontPage.

    Are they needed by FrontPage is another question.

    I don't know the internal workings of FrontPage but I think that it would probably fair just fine with out these two lines of HTML code.

    At the moment, I feel that they are move of an advert for FP.  But, before removal I should like to be sure.

    They are not needed in both cases.

    Frontpage will work without them
    and as dfu23 mentioned,  it is for the web to know that the website is created by Frontpage.

    Meta Tags are for the Search Engines,  when search engines look for something they find it in the Meta Tags.
