Right.  Even in such cases, the program should know the CES of each character

Suppose that XHTML documents are created and XML-unaware-but-HTML-aware browsers 
are used to handle them.  Since the MIME header is not available, 
the META tag is the only mechanism to specify the charset of the document.  

One could argue that it is the responsibility of those who write the stylesheet.  
However, I think that it would be great if there is a mechanism for automatically 
generating META tags.
