If want your sheet to be processed the same way no matter what, add a @charset
rule or have your server send a charset in the HTTP headers.... if you don't
we're just guessing.

I suppose we could just specify such sheets as invalid and refuse to process

Or specify that they are UTF-8 (a la XML).

Both would break most pages out there.
