  So let's say I have a response like the following, where the body is
ISO-8859-15 encoded as indicated.

  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  Content-Type: text/plain;charset=iso-8859-15
  X-Content-Type-Options: nosniff

Does the text document contain a Euro currency symbol? What if it's
<data:text/plain;charset=iso-8859-15,%FE%FF%20%AC> instead? And if you
see the Euro sign, how would you serve arbitrary ISO-8859-15 encoded
documents over HTTP and have them interpreted as intended?
