Try from the insert pull down menu,

Insert >
HTML >
Head Tags >
Keywords or description

Always works for me.

thanks for help ricky i tried that but it didn't work either but then i thought of trying it on my template page itself and it worked! i assume it didn't work on those other pages because the top part of my page is uneditable? so how do i put different keyworsd and description in other pages. i can't make the top part editable because i havne;t done my logo yet and if my top part is editable i will have to copy and paste logo in all of my 40 pages site insteag of letting the template do its work. thanks very much for help

To be honest they are not that vital anyway but if you are using templates you should be able to make these two area editable regions, just like you would for a page title.

Like this:-

<!-- TemplateBeginEditable name="Keywords" --><meta name="Keywords" content="your keywords go here" /><!-- TemplateEndEditable -->

ohhh that's an idea i didn't think about. thanks for the code! i wouldn't be able to come up with it on my own since all this html is quite mind boggling at the moment. thanks very much!!!!
