What is the meta tag ctl00_description

cmleung2 used Ask the Experts™
I have a website written in asp.net which uses a masterpage. I defined the meta keyword and description in my web.sitemap, but nothing shows up on the page, except it shows some meta id like ctl00_description and such:

<meta id="ctl00_description" name="description" content="handywise online advisors" />
<meta id="ctl00_keywords" name="keywords" content="online advisor, email consulting, financial advisor, consulting" />
<meta id="ctl00_refresh" name="refresh" http-equiv="refresh" />

What are these meta tag for?  Where did they come from?  How can I set my page so that it picks up the correct one?  

Here is the web.sitemap I have for that page, http://www.handywise.com/all_advisors.aspx?dept=Retirement_Planning, which doesn't show what it is supposed to show.  

Please help, thanks.
