           Summary: Meta charset handling during the parse should
                    special-case UTF-16 and reject non-ASCII supersets
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
               URL: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=582788
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P1
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: hsivonen@iki.fi

The tree builder spec says about meta: "If the element has a charset attribute,
and its value is a supported encoding, and the confidence is currently
tentative, then change the encoding to the encoding given by the value of the
charset attribute."

Instead, of merely considering "supported encoding", UTF-16 should be mappend
to UTF-8 and after alias resolution non-ASCII-superset encodings should be
treated as unsupported.
