I am trying to validate my XHTML file using W3C MarkUp Validation
The validator indicates that the file is a valid XHTML1.0 Transitional
but gives the following Note:

The HTTP Content-Type header sent by your web browser (unknown) did not
contain a "charset" parameter, but the Content-Type was one of the XML
text/* sub-types (text/xml). The relevant specification (RFC 3023)
specifies a strong default of "us-ascii" for such documents so we will
use this value regardless of any encoding you may have indicated
elsewhere. If you would like to use a different encoding, you should
arrange to have your browser send this new encoding information.

In my file I have the following line in the <head> tag
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=us-ascii" />

I am using IE6.0. If anyone knows the reason why the NOTE is being
shown, please let me know.

Appreciate your help!
