“The page was reloaded, because the character encoding declaration of the HTML document was not found when prescanning the first 1024 bytes of the file. The encoding declaration needs to be moved to be within the first 1024 bytes of the file.”

We recently experienced this issue above with one of our users. QuizMaker produces the following meta tag:

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

Since we are outputting HTML5 format out of QuizMaker, the style should be this one:

<meta charset="utf-8">

As the error states, the meta tag is not rendering early enough in the code. It is an intermittent issue because not all browsers are producing the error. In our case we found it was redirecting users back to the same page instead of advancing.

We do run business-logic beforehand which could be exhausting the byte count. Will report back our findings. Wanted to share this just in case someone already has experience with it or is suffering from it.
