<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; 
charset=Ovarian Cancer Support Group"
charset=iso-8859-1" />

... is nonsense. The correct syntax is:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=iso-8859-1" />

Except that since there is no XML prolog on your XML document, it should
be encoded using UTF-8 not ISO-8859-1.

BTW - the attempt to block the context menu with JavaScript is obnoxious
and made it more time consuming for me to identify your problem.
