Description Terje Bless 2003-08-27 07:26:18 UTC
From Björn Höhrmann:

[On] one can find

  <meta http-equiv='Content-Type'
        content='text/html; charset=Shift_JIS,ISO-8859-1'>

I've now seen such constructs about half a dozen of times. As the comma
is not allowed in charset named, could the validator have a special case
for them with a more user friendly error message?
