This page is (currently) send with following media type:
  
  Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

So there is no need for an XML declaration. (Even if the
media type would be switched to text/xml, the charset parameter
of the Content-Type header would remain authoritative.)

All the best,
Paul
