it just says that the webpage is written in text/html. or more specificly the content type is text/html. you could be more specific and also specify things like the character set used etc...

You should also note that this is ignored in some browsers, most popular example is firefox... if your server is serving your .html files as text/plain but your .html has that statement in it. IE will render it as html, however, Firefox will render it as plain text (showing your code rather than the page.) This is up to the web host to configure the mime types properly.
