Actually, i think there's still a problem here. If the @charset 'thing' 
is to be useful (ie. recognised for fallback encoding), then it has to 
follow a precise syntax, ie. a single space between charset and quote 
mark, and double quotes used rather than single.

That isn't expressed by the grammar

	<at-charset-rule> = @charset <string>;
