Hi!

Reading MS proposal (=decision!) about their new rendering mode switch, 
I have been very bugged that almost no one has picked up this flaw to be 
discussed:

If a charset is set with a meta-element, it does *not* override the 
http-header.

But

If a rendering mode is set with a meta-element, it *does* override the 
http-header.

Is there any precedence for this? If not, I'd suggest that the spec 
stipulates uniform behaviour.
