For HTML form submissions, unless the author indicated something else,
web browsers tend to use the character encoding of the document that in-
cludes the form to encode the characters; they could apply the same
logic to the submission of credentials when there is such a document
(e.g., the user clicked a link to a HTTP Auth protected page, the page
with the link could then be used to determine some encoding). Based on
my limited testing, I found this to be not the case.
