  1. Thanks. How do I determine the correct doctype to enter for this file since I did not code it and it did not come with a doctype? (Doesn't content='text/html serve as a doctype replacement?)
  2. Sorry for the very basic question. I have a test page that does not have a doctype tag but instead has <meta http-equiv='Content-Type' content='text/html; charset=UTF-8'>. I attached the file. The W3 validator does not like it because of the absence of a doctype tag. Can't <meta http-equiv='Content-Type' content='text/html; charset=UTF-8'> replace the doctype? Why not? If not, I do not know what doctype to put there because the code was automatically generated by the widely popular page: http://stevemorse.org/create/create.htmltest.html
  3. Is it enough to change the meta line stating the encoding in the html code or does something else need to happen?
  4. I have a series of html files that I created long ago using ISO-8859-1. I need to change them to UTF-8 character encoding. I have 2 questions:1. How do I do that? 2. The files include the meta line that statescharset=ISO-8859-1 Does this need to be changed manually or will it automatically be changed to UTF-8? (I currently use the Arachnophilia html editor). Thank you.
