Notice the one marked PHB. It's a Dilbert reference and means Point Haired Boss.

Actually it would be in any version ($+, or even Netscape if you go to the right page) seeing as it's actually a remote page (on ie.search.msn.com). This also means that, once they decide to change it on their end, it would be gone forever. On the bright side, this means it's not part of the inital download you did to get IE.

it is a very common practice for developers to put their name in the meta tags. they're either in the generator tag or author tag.
