[Bug 9128] New: It seems a bad idea to willfully violate the character model specification for a new standard. New HTML documents should have the correct encoding and should not need to be mis-interpreted. Why not specify mandatory UTF-8 anyway?

           Summary: It seems a bad idea to willfully violate the character
                    model specification for a new standard. New HTML
                    documents should have the correct encoding and should
                    not need to be mis-interpreted. Why not specify
                    mandatory UTF-8 anyway?
