Hi,

http://validator.w3.org/ allows to choose the character encoding. Even
if the encoding is bad, you can force it in the result page and it
works.
http://validator.w3.org/file-upload.html doesn't allow such a choice.
And if the encoding is bad, you can force it in result page, but it
doesn't work ( you just return to http://validator.w3.org/ page). So you
can't validate a local page with bad encoding (or I'm a fool and the
site isn't foolproof :).

Hope this helps,
Regards.
