problem with upload leg of the Validator

I'm experiencing a problem with the Validator - it's giving me errors on 
html files that were validated as OK previously. Seems to be associated 
with the upload route for validating.

This document below validates perfectly using the 
http://validator.w3.org/#validate_by_uri option
however, the same document fails using the 
http://validator.w3.org/#validate_by_upload option
against the document's image on my pc.

The error messages are:

      1 Error, 2 warning(s)

No Character Encoding Found! Falling back to UTF-8.
Unable to Determine Parse Mode!

The beginning source code is:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
  <meta name="generator" content=
  "HTML Tidy for Windows (vers 12 April 2005), see www.w3.org" />

  Clubs &amp; Societies in Hampshire, UK</title>
  <meta name="author" content="Julian H Jones" />
  <meta name="generator" content="AceHTML 6 Pro" />
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

And my editor (ACEHTML) says that I'm using iso-8859 encoding.

 I read the error reports and there seems to have already been an error 
noted in this area - but the examples are more complicated than mine. 
Also, the
URL route perhaps has been fixed and the upload option not.

The problem occurs with existing files for more than one of my websites 
- including files, for example, not changed since 9.9.2008

Thanks for your consideration.
