[whatwg] "Encoding declaration state" I hate the wording.

Maybe it would be better to just add

"A meta element is in an Encoding declaration state when its http-equiv
attribute is present with a value of content-type."

To the top of the definition of Encoding declaration state:
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/semantics.html#attr-meta-http-equiv-content-type


If you go to 4.2.5, the meta element, to figure out what constitutes a
valid meta element, you see a few uses of the phrase "Encoding declaration
state".  They're all links.  You click one, and it takes you to its
definition.

Which says nothing about how to know if an element is in such a state.
Because that's in a table about one page up.
