Serious bug on

If anyone from Microsoft is listening, please note that ...

My colleague, Charles Wicksteed, has spotted a serious problem at
<>. Many pages, including the page <>,
contain an illegal charset name. Note that I am not referring to page
<>, which contains a legal charset name.

The illegal name is "ISO8859-1". The IANA charset register does not
contain such an alias for "ISO-8859-1" and many browsers do not recognise
the string "ISO8859-1".

I am glad to see that Front Pad inserts the correct charset name.
