But that's not quite precise, is it? Still there are other ways to
specify a style sheet's encoding, still does "non-English" not
necessarily have any encoding implications, and still could you mess
up the encoding and output a working style sheet nonetheless, e.g.
with escaped characters, CMIIW. Anyway.

Apart from that, CR editors, @charset specifies the encoding, not the
character set. CMIIW here as well.
