Rocket Validator automatically scans your sites for accessibility issues using the W3C Validator,
hosted on our own servers and integrated into our web crawler.

Save time using our automated web checker. Let our crawler check your web pages on the W3C Validator.
HTML issues tagged as windows-1252.
<meta> tag has been found in the document stating that the charset is
windows-1252, but it actually is
utf-8. You should update the tag to reflect the actual encoding of the document, for example:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
In HTML5 you’re encouraged to use Unicode (UTF-8) character encoding rather than a legacy character encoding such as Latin1 (Windows-1252 or ISO 8859-1).
In short, it can be just a matter of using
<meta charset="utf-8"/> in your document, but you should also ensure that your pages are also saved and served as UTF-8.
