I have fixed the "" part of the error message in CVS, this will be included in
the next release.

However, the part of the current validator's error message which you did not
quote here contains links to resources that help you to choose a correct
character encoding:

 | If you believe the character encoding to be valid you can submit a request
 | for that character encoding (see the feedback page for details) and we will
 | look into supporting it in the future.
 |
 | IANA maintains the list of official names for character sets and the WDG has
 | some information to help you correctly specify the character encoding. 

http://www.iana.org/assignments/character-sets
"latin-1" is not an official IANA encoding or alias.  ("latin1" is a valid alias
for "iso-8859-1", but we don't currently support it; that's another issue).

To fix the problem with your page, just use the official preferred MIME name
"iso-8859-1".
