<META content= "MSHTML 5.50.4522.1800" name=generator> means what?

We’ve all seen them in the <head> but what does this mean?

<META content= “MSHTML 5.50.4522.1800” name=generator>

I’ve seen slightly different ones i.e. the end numbers so just wonder what it is and what it does?


Did you create the page it is in?
If so, what was used to create the page?

MSHTML 5.50 is the DLL for HTML editing that comes with Internet Explorer 5.5 (the version number changes with the version of IE installed). This means that the author created that page with either FrontPage, Visual InterDev, or some other product (most likely made by Microsoft) that uses IE as its design view.

I thought (guessed) as much.
Thanks Vinnie.
