You can use this page to generate geo.* meta tags for your own location. I think XHTML requires all tags to be lowercase, so be sure to change the generated <META name=blah> tags to <meta name=blah>.

I'm a bit of a Renaissance man, with far too many hobbies for my free time! But more important than any hobby is my family. My proudest accomplishment has been raising some great kids! And somehow convincing my wife to put up with me since 1988. ;)
