dear validator list :)

as in the w3schools examples ( 
http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_meta.asp ) i wanted to make my html 
more universal with trailing slashes. it was going fine 'til i've 
introduced the
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-2" />
   5: <meta name="keywords" content="Delphi, Object Pascal, Pascal, 
GYIK, FAQ, #Delphi.hu" />
   6: <meta name="description" content="Magyar Delphi oldal, #Delphi.hu, 
Delphi cuccok" />
   7: <link HREF="/style.css" rel="STYLESHEET" type="text/css" />

lines into my html. looks like the validator dont like this:
Line 4, column 73: character data is not allowed here

...e" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-2" />

i have took my question on #html @ ircnet but nobody was able to anserw 
it right.. only suspections, like switch doctype to strict... so i think 
i've tried everything with no results :/

the url of the bad document: http://http://delphi.cubeclub.hu/notvalid.html
the url of validation: 
http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fdelphi.cubeclub.hu%2Fnotvalid.html&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=%28detect+automatically%29&ss=1&sp=1&No200=1&verbose=1

if someone knows my fault please tell me what am i doin wrong. thanks, rs
