Question about the validator

Since most of my website is closed by login I use the validate by direct 
input with copy'n'paste from my output. With the new Firefox 3 I got a 
problem since it sends GET twice. Turned out that I missed the character 
encoding. Validate by URI was pointing that out for me. How come the two 
methods differ?

By direct input: This document was successfully checked as XHTML 1.1!
By URI: This document was Tentatively checked as XHTML 1.1 with the 
warning No Character Encoding Found! Falling back to windows-1252.

Best regards,
