Wrong charset label in XSLT Requirements 1.1 (HTML version)

Hello,

I took a look at "XSL Transformations Requirements Version 1.1"
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/WD-xslt11req-20000825>, and found that
the HTML version contains the following bogus meta element:

  <META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-16">

The server sends the document as "text/html; charset=iso-8859-1",
and the XML version contains the following XML declaration:

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>

so I think it's actually encoded in ISO-8859-1.  Although the HTML
spec says that the HTTP "charset" parameter is authoritative, the
document should contain the correct charset information if you use
the meta element.

Regards,
