Hello, I am currently trying to bring my site up to specs, and I have
the following meta tag on my page. Your validator does not seem to
support this charset, yet on your site you specify that THIS IS the most
current charset and is recommended. What I need to know is, am I doing
this correctly, because I copied this code from a reputable help
website, yet it seems to cause a validation error (Shouldn't it all be
in lower case?). Is ISO-10646 the current recommended charset for
HTML4.01 documents written in American English?

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=ISO-10646">

I believe for now, I will remove the charset tag completely.....since I
do not know which charset to use! Advice would be greatly appreciated!
Here is my URL: http://www.seething13.com 
It is very hard to find easy to understand info on this topic, and I am
dead set on writing a tutorial for other to refer to once I figure it
all out! This is very frustrating! OH, and what's this about XHTML 1.0?
Should I even BOTHER trying to conform to HTML 4.01 if XHTML 1.0 is
going to replace it soon? I'm sorry to ask so much but I HAVE been
surfing your site for 3 days now and still have not found the answers I
am looking for.

Many thanks,
