When checking tvcampus.net, I've got the following error :
"Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because on line 608  it 
contained one or more bytes that I cannot interpret as utf-8  (in other 
words, the bytes found are not valid values in the specified Character 
Encoding). Please check both the content of the file and the character 
encoding indication.

The error was: utf8 '\xE9' does not map to Unicode"
But my website uses iso-8859-1and I do have a valid meta element that 
declares this charset :
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/HTML; charset=iso-8859-1" />
Do you know what could cause this behavior ?
