I cannot reproduce the problem: the current validator reports e.g.
   non SGML character number 148
when the document contains octet 148 (decimal), i.e. the octet that 
represents the right double quotation mark in windows-1252, and the 
document's encoding is declared as iso-8859-1. So no change.

By the way, such octets aren't really a problem (in validation or 
otherwise) if you declare the encoding as windows-1252.

Did you notice that note? :-)
