Section 4.1 doesn't say what constitutes a valid encoding name. It also uses
lower-case for example encodings such as utf-8, whereas the IANA specification
of these names defines their preferred representation as upper case.


(1) add

"The value of the string literal following the keyword "encoding" is an encoding
name, and follows the same rules as the EncName specified in an XML declaration
in [XML].

(2) change the examples to use IANA registered character set names as written:
UTF-8, UTF-16, US-ASCII in upper case

(3) (optionally) add a reference to the note (or a copy of the note) in the XML
spec that says processors "should" treat encoding names as case-insensitive (at
least in the case of IANA-registered names)
