The RFC1766 (http://ds.internic.net/rfc/rfc1766.txt) defines the usage of
character set encoding using format like:

Content-type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-10
Content-Language: i-sami-no (North Sami) 
	{ context using ISO-8859-10 character set encoding. }

There seems to be some difference to the way used in HTML4.0. Is there any
effort to unify the practice?
