Charset+ISO-8859-1: Problem found

Thanks for reminding me to let the list know the problem has apparently been found.

As a dummy trying to make verifiable webpages, I still  don't understand how I can write:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<meta content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"

and have the server insert: 
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JavaScript src=""></script>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=JavaScript>writeHeaderFP();</SCRIPT>in front of my code, so that the  http headers the server sends reads "Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-80859-1" so my pages no longer verify.Joanne ----- Original Message -----

I don't know if that's the case, but at least the HTTP headers the server 
sends for the URL above contain this:

    Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-80859-1

If you don't have control over the server, the server admins should be able to 
fix that, I suggest contacting them.

By the way, it would be nice if you kept the www-validator mailing list Cc'd 
in replies or let them know that the problem has been found - knowing that 
there's nothing wrong with the validator might save a bit of someone's time 
who might be looking into this.
