have the header placed in there but get the following error message
for the site:
I added the following at the header:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
and get the error message below:
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 validate the document. The sources I tried are:
The HTTP Content-Type field.
The XML Declaration.
The HTML "META" element.
And I even tried to autodetect it using the algorithm defined in
Appendix F of the XML 1.0 Recommendation.
Since none of these sources yielded any usable information, I will not
be able to validate this document. Sorry. Please make sure you specify
the character encoding in use.
Re: Unable to Validate at w3.org
"meta http-equiv" is only an ersatz. That's why it's called "equiv".
