Greetings:

Using the following screen, I am sending a file for validation:

 <<...OLE_Obj...>> 


This is the exact content of the beginning of the file that I am submitting.
(Please note the red annotation.)


	<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
	
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd
<http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd> ">
	<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
	      lang="en"
	      xml:lang="en">
	<head> 
	  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type"
	        content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
	  <title>
	    Center for Disability - Resource Information
	  </title>
	  <link href="/css/denver no overflow.css"
	        rel="stylesheet"
	        type="text/css" />
	</head>

This is the result that I am getting; please note that it identifies the
DOCTYPE and the Encoding that I used.  Nevertheless, it says that no
encoding was found!

	 <<...OLE_Obj...>> 

	It is interesting to note that the source listing (in line 7) does
not show <meta http-equiv="Content-Type", but rather <meta
http-equiv="Content-Typ!" [emphasis added].


	 <<...OLE_Obj...>> 

	Stranger still, sometimes this same file validates just fine, i.e.,
without a "tentative" warning.  Please note that I cannot detect a pattern
or any other reason why the same file is sometimes OK and why it sometimes
give me the "tentative" warning.  

	I am also getting this same "tentative" warning on many other files
that I am submitting, files that have the same heading parameters (although,
I also get validation on the exact same files without the "tentative"
warning).

	Is this my problem, or is this occurring with other validation
attempts?

	Thanks,

	Bob Sullivan
