"For meta elements in the Encoding declaration state, the content attribute
must have a value that is an ASCII case-insensitive match for a string that
consists of the literal string "text/html;", optionally followed by any number
of space characters, followed by the literal string "charset=", ..."

Is there a good reason why the "charset" part isn't allowed to be uppercase?
