I notice that there is active discussion in two HTML5-related Bugzilla 
entries [1,2] of details related to charset detection.  I'm not up on the 
details, but at least the title of [2] suggests that charset sniffing is 
involved (to my untrained eye, most of the debate seems to be about parsing 
of charset parameters).  Anyway, given the TAG's ongoing interest in 
adherence to HTTP specifications in general, and sniffing in particular, I 
thought I'd point these out.
