In 
http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-html-encoding-declarations#metacontenttype 
I read,

"The encoding declaration should also fit within the first 1024 bytes of 
the document, so you should generally put it immediately after the 
opening tag of the head element."

Fair enough, but the character entity declarations of my document occupy 
about 2 kB.  How can the encoding declaration be within the first 1 kB?

Thanks,             ... Peter E.
