1) I'm running Safari 5.0.2 on Windows, and "Text Encoding" is set to
"default".

2) The question of *why* Opera is handling the escapes properly isn't really
relevant; what counts is the observable behavior.

You have claimed that this violation is needed for "compatibility", yet the
shipping versions of Opera and Safari on Windows, nor Konqueror do this. I
think this is proof that the claim is incorrect.

Please provide more data.
