Hello. Aoutomatic encoding detection at 1st page of the site does not work at Google Chrome (ver 4.0.249.78) and Firefox 3.5.7, at IE 8 results are normal:

I'm suppose that there's some error at XHTML validation.

Using Firefox 3.5.7 here, and I'm not having the issue you captured. Sounds like the rendering engine make a mistake while loading the page.

Yes, there's automatic country detection and this text supposed to be in Russian, but it isn't beacause of encoding detection mistake. You are from USA, so this text for you is in English and you cannot see this bacause english characters in all encodings always at first place by index.

This trouble is only at 1st page, all others are ok, as far as i can see. The real encoding is UTF-8, but it detects as win-1251
