           Summary: Spec should be more careful about UTF-16, UTF-16BE and
                    UTF-16LE

           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC

            Status: NEW

          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch

The BOM sniffing tables say the encoding is UTF-16BE or LE. Those are by
definition BOMless, so the spec should say big-endian UTF-16 and little-endian
UTF-16.

In various places, the are checks if the encoding of something is UTF-16. Those
checks should probably also check for UTF-16BE and UTF-16LE.
