Good evening

What' the difference between charset=iso-8859-1 and charset=utf-8?
I used the first in my HTML code but when I validated it with "www.w3.org" it wad changed to the latter.
Do I leave it like that or must I change it in all the other pages?

Thanks

Depends on what character encoding/language you are after. Different charsets may or may not display certain characters.

Here are a couple sites that will help you out.
