I18N-ISSUE-17: UTF-16 an invalid encoding in Polyglot Markup [Polyglot]

http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/17

Raised by: Richard Ishida
On product: Polyglot

3. Specifying a Document's Character Encoding
http://dev.w3.org/html5/html-xhtml-author-guide/html-xhtml-authoring-guide.html#character-encoding

WG Approved: No

Previously the polyglot document allowed only UTF-8 and UTF-16 encodings. Leif Silli has proposed that only UTF-8 be allowed, and the editor of the polyglot document has changed the specification to say that.

The i18n WG should see whether there is consensus on that approach.
