As suspected - your server is emitting a Content type header with
nonsensical charset data.

The reason is most likely to do with an error in your CGI script, but
could be a server misconfiguration. 

The validator, however, is acting properly as far as I know. I believe
the http headers trump any data inside the document itself as regards
character set information.
