Using Direct Input mode: UTF-8 character encoding assumed

Using Direct Input mode: UTF-8 character encoding assumed

When I validate a web page in dreamweaver CS5 (using Jeffrey Zeldman's Web Standards Advisor ) I receive the following warning; Using Direct Input mode: UTF-8 character encoding assumed.



However if I validate using W3C either as a file upload or via the live site the page validates correctly.



Can anybody please help, as it is driving me insane.

can you send a copy of the page that is causing the error in a zip archive.

Thank you for your reply.

It has started happening to all web pages that I have tested from within Dreamweaver on my local PC. They had all previously validated ok.

If I validate using W3C I do not get a warning.

I have attached a file (index.zip)

However you can check the same file by browsing to index.htm

this is an issue with the validate by direct input method of validation that is used by the web standards advisor:
#validate_by_input



The validate by direct input will always give this warning due to the way it works, it is only a warning though and does not imply an error in your page.
