MS test suite at-charset-039 bug

http://samples.msdn.microsoft.com/ietestcenter/css/chapter_4/Rules/at-charset-039.htm  
loads a style sheet that has no external character encoding metadata and  
has "Big5" in the @charset declaration. Even though the text has been  
encoded as UTF-8 decoding it as Big5 will still give meaningfull results  
and since the UA never knows the original encoding no error handling in  
the form of ignoring the external style sheet should go into work here.

Therefore the first selector in the external style sheet will not match,  
but the second one will, resulting in one green and one red piece of text  
on the page.
