Hello,

I tried to validate (http://validator.w3.org/):

http://www.channel4.com/news/special-reports/special-reports-storypage.jsp?id=67#jumptostory

I got the following error:

=============
Sorry! A fatal error occurred when attempting to transcode the character 
encoding of the document. Either we do not support this character 
encoding yet, or you have specified a non-existent character encoding 
(often a misspelling).

The detected character encoding was "utf8".

The error was "".
===========


It might be because of:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

I normally write in caps:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">


Is that the problem?

In addition, could a clearer error message be displayed by the validator?


I am not a member of this list, please include my email address in any 
replies.

Kind regards

JG
