Yes.

Well, there are probably more problems, but yes, it fails to handle them
properly. However, an example like

  @charset "iso-8859-1";
  Björn { display: block; border: thick red solid }

in ISO-8859-1 and an likewise XML document like

  <?xml version='1.0' encoding='iso-8859-1'?>
  <?xml-stylesheet href='björn.css' type='text/css'?>
  <Björn>...</Björn>

is correctly handled by IE6. However, IE6 requires for example
the type pseudo attribute to be present in the xml-stylesheet
processing instruction, this is another bug...
