The attribute's value is a string. A character encoding is a mapping of byte
sequences to Unicode codepoints. So the attribute's value (the character
encoding name) has to be interpreted as a character encoding to use it. It
doesn't mean anything more than that.

Does that make sense? Is there better (but still accurate) terminology that I
can use?
