Back 2 years ago (or so), I created a webpage in Maltese for someone in need of
support in a newsgroup. Now, I just updated the page and validated and I got
this error message:

"
A fatal error occurred when attempting to transcode the character encoding of
the document. Either we do not support this character encoding ('iso-8859-3')
yet, or you have specified a non-existent character encoding (often a misspelling).

The error was: "".

If you believe the character encoding to be valid you can submit a request for
that character encoding (see the feedback page for details) and we will look
into supporting it in the future. 
"

I'm sure iso-8859-3 as charset used to be supported by W3C validator.

I can make the webpage at the provided URL leaner, reduced.
