In Opera 10.5 on Mac OS X Leopard, the results of the 4 tests (in the 
Attachments section of that bug report) depends on the localization of 
Opera:

* Norwegian localization activated: EUC encoding *not* detected
  (Thus, in attachment.cgi?id=500769, the script runs *once*.)
* Japanese localization activated: EUC encoding *is* detected
  (Thus, in attachment.cgi?id=500769, the script runs *twice*.)

As reported in October 2009 Safari {now tested version 5.0.3 
(5533.19.4) on Mac OS X Leopard} does not seem to have any such link to 
the localization. [1] Did not have oportutinity to test Chrome for the 
moment. (As for Windows: when I get myself a 
multi-locale/multi-localization version of Windows 7, I can do more 
tests ...)
