Well, it does not really complain, just warns.

Yes, it still issues the warning. That's because it is simplistic and 
just checks what the declared encoding is, and if it is iso-8859-1, it 
tells that it will be interpreted as windows-1252.

The minimal document to demonstrate this is

<!doctype html><title></title>

when served with the HTTP header

Content-Type: text/html;charset=iso-8859-1
