           Summary: Validator ignores HTML5 encoding declaration
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: All
               URL: http://htmlex.met.cz/
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: bugzilla@met.cz
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org


Seems validator ignores short version of encoding declaration:
<meta charset="utf-8">

Validation of page http://htmlex.met.cz/ gives me 1 warning "No Character
Encoding Found! Falling back to UTF-8." Validation with
http://html5.validator.nu/ tool gives no warning.

Looks problem is only in "Validate by URI" and "Validate by File Upload".
"Validate by Direct input" does produce no warning.
