Dear experts,

In HTML5, normally I translate my existing code to this:

   
<meta charset="iso-8859-1"/>

In xhtml strict, previously I would use:

   
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"/>

Because I am not writing this in English, but Danish.
When validating my code, the Validator will render my code like this:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"/>
<!-- <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"/> -->

Does that means that I'm not supposed to use other values than utf-8?

Thanks for your help!
