The HTTP charset parameter

The line in the HTTP header typically looks like this:

Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
The HTTP charset parameter

and I thought it looked like this!

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "">

Anyway what a totaly stupid explination how to add a doc type to your doc. This sure explains why we all ignore the where we can.

If I explain how to ride a bike, should I start with the full size history of bicicles? Then trow in a few bike designs and make you learn how their inventors are named and documented over time.

I think that would never get you going on the bike?

the "how to" replaced by "the why"???? DUHHH?????
