Display problems with Earth Fleet Book 1 by Steven Lake

I downloaded the free book by Stephen Lake (see the forum thread http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=83466) and tried to read it in EPUBReader. There were lots of garbled characters, so I tried ADE and it displayed okay.

This book was found to be problematic as it has 2 code pages declared.

Sigil was throwing away the curly quotes because it detected the first code page (UTF-8), and correctly ignored the second (CP1252)

The Experts said that ADE incorrectly allowed the second declaration.

Thanks for the help theducks. I manually edited the files to change all occurrences of "charset=windows-1252" with "charset=utf-8". The epub now renders properly in EPUBReader and ADE.
