Hi, shows three
strange characters at the top of the page ().

Apparently, those characters have the values EF BB BF in hexadecimal
notation. Interpreted as UTF-8 sequence, they encode the Unicode
codepoint FFFE. This codepoint is used as a marker for the endianness in
encodings other than UTF-8. I doubt such a marker would be legal in or
would make sense for an UTF-8 encoded document. Also, the document's
content-type meta-tag claims the document uses ISO-8859-1.

I suspect there's a problem in the toolchain used to create the document
(oherwise, I would have fixed it in the repository).
