One of the websites I am working on declares ecoding of the HTML file using <meta charSet="utf-8"/> (notice the capital S) instead of <meta charset="utf-8"/>.

I am aware that this is not following the standard, but does it affects the correct interpretation of characters in the content? Must this be corrected?


HTML attributes are case insensitive so, yes, you can do that. Running it through the validator would have shown you that, too.

Note: the <meta> tag does not use and does not need a closing slash and never has.
