It's fairly common to find Windows-encoded XML declared
as ISO-8859-1; this causes problems for any strict
parser, as smart-quotes (and a few other characters)
turn out as undefined characters.

This patch adds a warning when these characters show
up; if people have taken the time to use a validator,
it's good to make them aware of this kind of edge-case.

    Patch applied! Thanks!

    For future reference, when creating a new message, please
    make sure that a new file is created in
    feedvalidator/docs/error.
