DOM Level 3 Core uses xmlEncoding and inputEncoding, XSLT uses output-
encoding, .NET uses System.Text.Encoding.*, Google search uses "ie" and
"oe" parameters indicating "encoding", ... It seems unlikely you could
make a sensible argument about usage (outside the context of HTTP
headers, which includes "HTML") to choose one over the other here.
