Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Yeah, I considered that. I also considered "The content attribute
must be specified unless the charset attribute is specified, in which case it
must be omitted". However, upon comparing the three, I came to the conclusion
they were all pretty confusing. The one in the spec is the only one that
clearly makes the link between the attributes that need content="" and the
content="" attribute, rather than linking content="" specifically to the one
attribute that _doesn't_ need it (charset=""), which seemed to be a slight win.
