Hello!

I have trouble to validate the xhtml-file you can see on the bottom.

The error message is:
"The HTTP Content-Type header sent by your web browser (unknown) did not
contain a "charset" parameter, but the Content-Type was one of the XML
text/* sub-types (text/xml). The relevant specification (RFC 3023)
specifies a strong default of "us-ascii" for such documents so we will use
this value regardless of any encoding you may have indicated elsewhere. If
you would like to use a different encoding, you should arrange to have your
browser send this new encoding information.
Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because on lines 12, 14 it
contained one or more bytes that I cannot interpret as us-ascii (in other
words, the bytes found are not valid values in the specified Character
Encoding). Please check both the content of the file and the character
encoding indication. "


....but I think I have a correct character encoding (iso-8859-1). So what is
the matter?
