View Full Version : can not get html to validate via w3c mobile validator

Feb 21st, 2010, 02:28 AM
i can not seem to get w3c to validate my html code


i get the following errors....

The document is served without caching information ("Expires" or "Cache-Control" header)


The HTTP Content-Type header does not specify a character encoding and no UTF-8 encoding or a non-UTF-8 is specified in the XML declaration


The HTTP Content-Type header does not specify a character encoding but it specifies an Internet media type starting with "text/" and there is no meta element with http-equiv attribute that specifies UTF-8 character encoding

can anyone please tell me what i am doing wrong with my code for it not to validate.
