Please change validator pages to UTF-8

I was quite surprised to see that the main validator page
(and probably others) are still iso-8859-1 (see e.g.
http://webtools.mozilla.org/web-sniffer/view.cgi?url=http%3A%2F%2Fvalidator. 
w3.org%2F).
This leads to problems when validating IRIs and, once we support that, IDNs.

All validator output is UTF-8, and there is no reason
to have the input be something else.

Regards,    Martin.
