EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you are
satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue
yourself, if you are able to do so. For more details, see this document:

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The issue I am responding to here is that windows-949 is not
registered with IANA. If there is another issue, please file separate bugs --
only one issue per bug, please.

Now, in response to the report that windows-949 is not registered: That the
IANA registry is incomplete is a bug with the IANA registry, not with the HTML
spec. The HTML spec here is describing reality: an implementation must act as
described if it is to be compatible with legacy content, and enabling the
creation of user agents that are compatible with legacy content is the entire
purpose of the specification. Thus, I recommend raising the issue with IANA.
For the purposes of the HTML spec, this bug is invalid.

(I would reassign this bug to IANA but they don't use the same bug system so
that's not possible, so instead I'll mark it as invalid.)

Please feel free to file separate bugs for other issues, if any, that the
discussion above may have uncovered.
