This issue tracks the bug listed above and was created as part of the WG CR process.


Reporter: jshin@chromium.org

Blink (Chrome, Opera) and Webkit with ICU (Safari) distinguish between JIS X
201 ( "ESC ( J") and US-ASCII ( "ESC ( B" ). I thought that Gecko did that, too
even though it may have changed its behavior recently to match the spec. 

Assuming that Gecko did distinguish between the two in the past, what's the
rationale for unifying the two given the status of implementations ?
