In the HTML2 spec in  Section 2.4, sub-heading "Character sets"
(http://www.ics.uci.edu/pub/ietf/html/html2/htmlspec281194_9.html#HEADING16),
there is the statement that the charset parameter is reserved for future use:

        Character sets
                The charset parameter is reserved for future use. See Section
                2.16 for a discussion of character sets and encodings in HTML.

Does someone know the history behind this paragraph?
How does this affect our discussions about using the charset parameter?

thx,
bob
