info meta character encoding declaration uses http-equiv


This page uses the following character encoding declaration with an http-equiv attribute:

<meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"/>

This is acceptable for HTML5, however you may want to consider using the meta element with a charset attribute instead. For example:

<meta charset="UTF-8">

What to do

Replace the http-equiv and content attributes in your meta tag with a charset attribute.

error Content-Language meta element used to set the default document language


This page uses a meta element with the http-equiv attribute value set to Content-Language.

<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en"/>

The HTML5 specification has made this type of meta element obsolete in HTML, so you should not use it for pages written in HTML5. This is due to the widespread confusion surrounding the use of this construct. In addition, browsers are inconsistent in the way they handle this information.

Given this, it is strongly recommended that you not use this Content-Language meta element in any HTML format.

What to do

Remove the Content-Language meta element, and ensure that you have used an attribute on the html tag to specify the default language of the page.
