Ok, the XHR spec can now get what is described in comment 8 by creating a new
algorithm that is just steps 2, 4, and 5 (with a different end condition) from
the "encoding sniffing algorithm" in the HTML spec (these are all pretty short
steps), followed by a final step to default to UTF-8, and by making sure the
confidence is always marked "certain" (that overrides the <meta> stuff in the
tree builder).

Is that OK, or do you want me to define that algorithm in HTML? I mean, I can,
but it'd be a bit weird since nothing in the HTML spec uses it. Ms2ger, do you
need the same algorithm? If two specs need it, it makes more sense for me to
provide it.
