Handling character encodings in HTML and CSS

the paragraph about CSS encoding declarations in the “In a nutshell” 
section was changed from:

“Use the @charset rule for external style sheets (but not CSS in your 
HTML page) if you have non-ASCII content, such as font names, ids or 
class names, etc.”


“You can use @charset or HTTP headers to declare the encoding of your 
style sheet, but you only need to do so if your style sheet contains 
non-ASCII characters and, for some reason, you can’t rely on the 
encoding of the HTML and the associated style sheet to be the same.”


Danish, German, Polish, Romanian, Russian and Ukrainian translators are 
kindly asked to provide a translation of the new paragraph.
