Hi list!

I'm using an IBM iSeries and this extravagant machine decided to use 
ISO_8859-1 instead of ISO-8859-1 for CGI. This is quite unusual, but valid.

I have no problems with this except one:

http://validator.w3.org doesn't recognize ISO_8859-1, so i think i cannot 
place the "valid HTML" icon on my pages without asking for trouble...

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
does not help, then the validator says "Character Encoding mismatch" and 
decides to use ISO_8859-1.

Is it possible to add ISO_8859-1 to the list of charsets (or just quietly 
accept it)?

best regards /  Mit freundlichen Grüssen
