Dear Voice Browser Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/CR-voicexml21-20050613/ inherits the
<script> element defined in VoiceXML 2.0. The definition of that
element includes a "charset" attribute which is defined as

  The character encoding of the script designated by src. UTF-8 and
  UTF-16 encodings of ISO/IEC 10646 must be supported (as in [XML])
  and other encodings, as defined in the [IANA], may be supported.
  The default value is UTF-8.

It's unclear when implementations would use the value of the attribute
to decode external scripts. For example, it seems that implementations
must ignore the attribute when the script is transported via a MIME-
like mechanism like HTTP and the encoding is specified in the charset
parameter in the Content-Type field. Please change VoiceXML such that
VoiceXML 2.1 implementations process script content in a manner con-
sistent with

  http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-hoehrmann-script-types-03.txt

and other applicable specifications.

regards,
