           Summary: Restricting multiple character encoding declarations per
                    document
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Spec bugs
        AssignedTo: dave.null@w3.org
        ReportedBy: lachlan.hunt@lachy.id.au

The spec states

"There must not be more than one meta element with a charset attribute per
document."

This requirement fails to take into account character encoding declarations
using:

  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=UTF-8">

The requirement should instead state that there must not be more than one meta
element used as a character encoding declaration per document.  This should
make it clear that only one of either <meta charset> or <meta
http-equiv="Content-Type" ...> may appear.
