Hi,

   The (X)HTML files miss a charset parameter in the Content-Type HTTP
header. Since user agents must not assume any default encoding and
authors are strongly encouraged to use one, I suggest adding something
like

  AddType text/html;charset=utf-8 .html

to the Apache configuration files. Additionally the checklink.pl scripts
needs one, too.

regards,
