http://www.htmlhelp.org/reference/html40/head/meta.html
lists the commonly used set, and has a useful set of links
at the bottom.

META tags are user-definable tags for headers, and can be
created for the specific use of the page creator: If you
were a zoo web site, having a META tag for "species" or
"habitat" might make sense. I often use META tags for
"product" because I can find all the pages for a specific
product that way.
Including the ones defined at htmlhelp.org, the tags are not
consistently treated by all browsers and search robots.
