"latin1" alias doesn't validate!

My webpage

didn't validate using the HTML validator because of my choice of name for the character encoding. However, looking at IANA's list i found that "latin1" was a alias I could use. 

So can you add "latin1" to the validator? - In Linux I always use "latin1" in my config files instead of "ISO-8859-1" because that's so hard to remember and it looks awfully bad.
