Hi, I found this small inaccuracy:


"The encode(input, options) method, when invoked..." << /options/ not exist for
this method, should be just "encode(input)". In algorithm I don't see using
/options/ at least once.

For the same case, in green box, this text can be delete:

"If options's stream is set to true, the method can be invoked multiple times
to process a fragmented stream." << this is funcionality of TextDecoder, not

But in the other site encode() should support streaming like decode()? 

I test this in Firefox an Chrome:

<script type = "text/javascript">

    alert(new TextEncoder().encode("", 2,2,2,2));


and get the result:

- Chrome works fine, ignores additional arguments
- Firefox throw "TypeError: Argument 2 of TextEncoder.encode can't be converted
to a dictionary". Looks like Firefox take attention to the second argument but
why? Its bug?
