           Summary: This says "The codecs parameter, which certain MIME
                    types define, might be necessary to specify exactly
                    how the resource is encoded." Is this completely up to
                    the browser to decide? Are there any instructions for

Comment:
This says "The codecs parameter, which certain MIME types define, might be
necessary to specify exactly how the resource is encoded." Is this completely
up to the browser to decide? Are there any instructions for browsers on how to

vague, that's all.
