"ACTION DanC: research the bug in the svg diagram."
-- http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-tag/2002Jun/0019.html

short version: it's not essential,
not even clearly relevant, not well-reviewed;
I suggest getting rid of it.

Details: the link text describes it as an
"SVG diagram for determining character encoding";
but it seems to be more and less than that: it's
not just the rules for determining the character
encoding, it's also info about how to check
consistency between apparent and actual encoding.
And it's got heuristics, as well as rules,
for sniffing out encodings.

And... Martin, I can't find my notes, but
didn't we find a bug in it somewhere? You
were going to contact TimBL about it, as I recall.
But I can't find mail to that effect either.

Did the diagram help any readers? Would
you miss it?
