           Summary: Don't honor <meta> pragmas that don't come from the

The old parser in Gecko didn't honor the semantics of <meta http-equiv> coming
from innerHTML. E.g. not honoring http-equiv="Refresh" is required for compat
with snapple.com. See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=599584

Please adjust the spec accordingly to ignore pragmas from innerHTML and from
script-created metas.

http://software.hixie.ch/utilities/js/live-dom-viewer/saved/666 doesn't
navigate in Gecko, WebKit or IE8 (but navigates in Opera).
