If you are using "direct input", you will find some explanation in the  
ongoing discussion at:
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=6259

If you are using "by URI", then it probably means that your server is  
configured to send the document as utf-8. If that's the case, the  
validator will send a warning about encoding mismatch. You would have  
to reconfigure your server to serve this document properly.

Hope this helps,
