[Bug 10803] Ignore document.written charset metas


--- Comment #6 from Ian 'Hixie' Hickson <ian@hixie.ch> 2010-11-29 19:35:33 UTC ---
Opera doesn't seem to do this:

In any case, I'm not arguing that the majority of browsers don't do this. I
agree that if the only goal here was to write a spec that exactly matched
legacy implementations that it would make sense to do this. My point is just
that this is a lot of additional complexity and that the world would be better
if we could move away from it. Having a simpler spec leads to a more
competitive marketplace, and this is an area where the complexity is already
heinous. A compatibility argument here should be based on demonstrated need,
not the proxy of implementations. The proxy of implementations is a good
shortcut to use when the available options are otherwise equivalent. In this
instance, they are not.
