Errata in the SGML declaration for HTML

The FPIs appearing in the BASESET CHARSET and the SYNTAX CHARSET
are not coded character sets at all, but character encoding schemes.
The confusion arises because "charset" has been traditionally used
in MIME to refer to character encoding schemes.  SGML however deals
in coded character sets.

In particular UCS-4 is the character encoding scheme that represents UCS
(a coded character set) using 32-bit integers.  Clauses 5.1 and 5.2 have
all of this correct, but the SGML declaration does not.
