It seems you are using XHTML and the ISO-8859-1 character encoding,
yet you don't specify this encoding anywhere but the <meta> element.
You must specify the encoding in the HTTP header, the XML declaration
or both, the <meta> element is not sufficient for XHTML documents.
The Markup Validator indeed fails to detect this kind of error, this
is a known bug.
