"Encodings in which a series of bytes in the range 0x20 to 0x7E can encode
characters other than the corresponding characters in the range U+0020 to
U+007E represent a potential security vulnerability:"
What this doesn't mention is that some ASCII-compatible encodings like
Shift-JIS have harmless substitutions, such as replacing the backslash with the
yen sign, which is OK because it is not used much (if at all) in HTML.
