If you have a form on a page that is ISO-8859-1, and the data that is
submitted (either as GET or as POST) from that form contains characters
outside the ISO-8859-1 repertoire, what should the UA do?

This is not an idle question, both Opera and Mozilla need an answer to
this in order to implement interoperable behaviour soon.

Cheers,
