I believe it is intended to signal the text is UTF encoded, rather than,
say, ISO-8859-15. And most of the software that can't deal with BOM's
aren't too happy with UTF anyway.

In Firefox choosing UTF-8 encoding explicitly makes it disappear, It
should automatically figure it out, but obviously the meta tag is
discouraging it.
