The above page is _not_ mine.

I decided to run validator on it because the page does not work in 
either of
the two browsers I used on i,t Mozilla and Knqueror, on Red Hat Linux 
8.0. I
ran Validate from K because it has a link for the purpose.

The error I get is this:

Sorry! A fatal error occurred when attempting to transcode the 
character encoding of the document. Either we do not support this 
character encoding yet, or you have specified a non-existent character 
encoding (often a misspelling).

The detected character encoding was "cp1252".
The error was "".

  If you believe the character encoding to be valid you can submit a 
request for that character encoding (see the feedback page for details) 
and we will look into supporting it in the future.

This is supposedly a professional organisation (though I sometimes 
wonder). Would it be possible for your
validator to handle this character encoding?
