Can anyone advise what is wrong with the following and giving me an error message of:

No Character Encoding Found! Falling back to UTF-8.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en" xml:lang="en">

The file is xhtml transitional

Hi there Gemini23

your document just requires the addition of something like this...

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">

There's no "character set" definition in that chunk of code.

You can have one in the HTTP header or the <head> section of the HTML document.
