FWIW, using <meta charset=utf-16> is an error in HTML. When used in XML  
its value must be UTF-8. See  
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/complete.html#attr-meta-charset

For HTML the requirements are more complex, but UTF-16 is not allowed and  
when specified is treated as UTF-8 (though if the document is actually  
encoded as UTF-16 it would be decoded as UTF-16).
