Here are a few tricks I have learned.

Infoseek likes it like this.

Meta tags on the main "index.html"
Do not repeat them on other frames.
Thay also told me it is good to have the meta tags in the
following areas.

and they also said you also should put a few in the

Infoseek reads(indexes) up to 255 keywords on each page and
considers it spamming if the discriptions and keywords are the
same in other frames.

You can also do it like this:

I also cheat a little like the <meta tag author="put title or keyword here">
