Comment:
I'm strongly opposed to having "willful violations" of the specs, and of
mandating the use of platform-specific Windows encodings in preference to
standardised ISO ones, on the grounds of supporting "legacy" content; isn't
this supposed to be a new spec for new HTML 5 documents, with no existing
legacy to support?
