I got the message:

 No Character Encoding Found! Falling back to UTF-8.
I was not able to extract a character encoding labeling from any of the 
valid sources for such information. Without encoding information it is 
impossible to reliably validate the document. I'm falling back to the 
"UTF-8" encoding and will attempt to perform the validation, but this is 
likely to fail for all non-trivial documents.
Read the FAQ entry on character encoding for more details and pointers on 
how to fix this problem with your document.

I then followed the links which talked about ISO's and content type BUT NOT 
how to put them into my document.  I did find one example
---  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; 
harset=utf-8"/>  ---
but when I added it to my document, it went from being tentatively approved 
to failing.

I need to know HOW to enter the correct character encoding in my document.
