I think the bug is in the other browsers. <iframe> starts out as
about:blank (always the case if there's no src). about:blank defaults
to a text/html resource of the empty string whose encoding is utf-8.
That's it. (Unless one of the scripts included causes navigation, that
would complicate matters.)
