    Actually, wouldn't you add them to header.php, as that template gets called up first? At least in 1.5 beta it is called up first.

    Somebody will correct me if I'm wrong, but I *think* that meta tags do not hold the "value" that they once did, mostly due to abuses. That's not to say that they aren't worth having anyway, but from what I understand, the URLs that are generated by WordPress account for more SE friendliness than meta tags.

    timothyb, only if you're using 1.5, and/or the theme you use has a header.php.

    NM, for the most part, though some search engines and other indexing tools still make use of them.
