           Summary: fix HTML5 facet so that it doesn't incorrectly warn "No

           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD

          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5

patch with proposed changes

see http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-validator/2009Jul/0034.html
and http://www.annmanor.ca/news.shtml

that page contains the element <meta charset="utf-8" /> , which is a conformant
character-encoding declaration in HTML5. So the HTML5 facet should not emit a 
"No Character Encoding Found" warning.

for a proposed fix, see the attached patch
