Anyone know what this error means?


Sorry, I am unable to validate this document because on line 23 it contained one or more bytes that I cannot interpret as utf-8 (in other words, the bytes found are not valid values in the specified Character Encoding). Please check both the content of the file and the character encoding indication.

The error was: utf8 "\x92" does not map to Unicode

I searched my page and do not see \x92 anywhere on the page.

Here is a link



That is a single character, not 4 separate characters and so is not easy to search for. in most programs it will just look like a space.


In the validator does the line number match up the the line numbers in DreamWeaver?


<li class="last"><a href="contact.shtml" title="Contact Nicolette&#65533;s Catering of Portland Or">Contact</a></li>

The single quote is the issue, "Nicolette�s"


Looks like the file has been saved as Windows-1252, and the server declares the encoding to be UTF-8.

Code point 0x92 (146 decimal) is the right single quotation mark, or apostrophe (’) in Windows-1252. It's an invalid character in ISO 8859 and in UTF-8, since the 0x80-0x9F range is reserved for C1 control characters.

Replace the character with the proper Unicode apostrophe (U+2019) or escape it as &#38;#8217;.


Thanks for your help - all is well now!
