I have <meta charset="utf-8"> written in my code but the w3validater says I have no character encoding set. Furthermore it says I have these errors for that same bit of code which it tells me I don't have:

-end tag for "meta" omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified

-start tag was here

-required attribute "content" not specified

And it doesn't give me much of an explanation for any of those. What can I do to fix this? Thanks.
