Hello! I newly submitted a task after to run it v the connected W3C HTML validator and the W3C CSS validator and also both showed no errors.

You are watching: The character encoding was not declared proceeding using windows 1252

I just obtained my review results earlier though, and they"ve declared the following

Unfortunately, over there is one error as soon as running the html with the validator. :

"Error: The character encoding was no declared. Proceeding using windows-1252."

No errors in the CSS. If you resolve this, it will be perfect.

I ran it v the validators again and also I"m not acquiring this error. :-/

Is mine reviewer using some other validator 보다 the one attached in the project summary or what am i doing wrong?

The validator you used most likely guessed what character encoding to be being used. Whereby your reviewers did no guess correctly. If you add the following in her tags you must be fine:

meta charset="UTF-8">
This is based off what your reviewer said.

thank you therefore much! I"ve included that line and am now resubmitting.

This should really be taught in the at an early stage parts the the food or at the very least the reviewers should be using the very same validator that is linked in the project description. The line wasn"t in any of my previous projects and also there wasn"t a problem. I hope this "Needs work" doesn"t go against my final results!

Thanks again Matthew! much appreciated
