De facto Thai encodings

The draft says:
> when a user agent would otherwise use the ISO-8859-11 encoding, it  
> must instead use the Windows-874 encoding

The spec should also say that TIS-620 maps to Windows-874.

Of ISO-8859-11, TIS-620 and Windows-874, only TIS-620 is a registered  
IANA name. Thus, it isn't possible to declare the actual encoding in  
an IANA-correct way. However, Firefox 3, Opera 9.5 and Safari 3  
recognize all three names. Perhaps the spec should require all the  
three be recognized.

Finally, it seems that all these map to a version of Windows-874 that  
support euro (Windows-874-2000?).
