I'm trying to get the HTML validator to work, but the same document I'm
validating works fine on http://validator.w3.org, but gives me the following
error message on my server:

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

The detected character encoding was "iso-8859-1".

The error was "Unsupported conversion: Invalid argument at
/data/ch/sri/yagi/cgi-bin/html_validator/check.pl line 448. ".

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. 

Does anyone have any idea? The installation instructions are... ummm....

Thanks & regards,
