Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale:

WebKit trunk doesn't support this. Are you sure you haven't set your default
encoding to UTF-8 in Safari? What version are you testing?

Opera doesn't support this either. It just ignores all punctuation. For
instance, see:
   http://www.hixie.ch/tests/adhoc/html/parsing/encoding/121.html
This is known to be incompatible with legacy content, however (the spec used to
do this too, but had to change for compat reasons).
