Well, I see your point. I will neither agree nor disagree at this point.
We are currently discussing Accept-Charset here at Netscape. Some of our
team members are also reading this email. Hopefully, some of them will

In response to other mail on this list, I am completely unconvinced that
UI is needed for Accept-Charset. I am also concerned about "q". For
Unicode, it might mean giving a low "q" since most environments cannot
support *all* of Unicode. Also, the bit mask idea was just that: an
idea. I'm not religiously bound to it.

Over and out for now...
