           Summary: Different result when valdating by direct input or by
                    url
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Website
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: harald-rene.flasch@hotmail.com
         QAContact: www-validator-cvs@w3.org


When validating by direct HTML input I get the following result:

This document was successfully checked as HTML 4.01 Transitional!
Result: Passed

When validating the same HTML document by url I get the following result:

This document was Tentatively checked as HTML 4.01 Transitional
Tentatively passed, 1 warning(s)
No Character Encoding Found! Falling back to UTF-8.

So, character encoding is not checked when using validating by direct HTML
input. Imho the character encoding should also be checked when validating by
direct HTML input.

Usually I am validating my HTML documents by direct input. Only when validation
was successfully I upload them to the server.
