I just added a new file that maps IANA 'charset' parameters
to iconv parameters. The special 'windows-xxxx' code is gone.
I also added a very thorough (but fast) check of UTF-8 byte
patterns. See:

I'm thinking about what to do with 'unknown'. Throwing it
out altogether would be best, but maybe this would create
too much opposition. Anyway, I don't want pages with
an 'unknown' charset to get "Congratulations!".

Regards,   Martin.
