Hi Bjoern

Thank-you for your response.

The XSL and XML Query Working Groups discussed the response [1] and we 
agreed that the editor will draft new text to reflect that the http-equiv 
attribute with the value "Content-Type" is compared without consideration 
of casing and leading/trailing spaces. 

I would appreciate if you could check the next public draft of the 
specification when it becomes available, and verify that I've correctly 
applied this change, and that it resolves this issue to your satisfaction.

That's better, but the text should define how the attribute value is
compared to "Content-Type". In HTML 4.01

  <meta http-equiv="content-type" ...
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" ...
  <meta http-equiv=" Content-Type " ...

are all the same.
