            Bug ID: 23646
           Summary: "us-ascii" should not be an alias for "windows-1252"
           Product: WHATWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Encoding
          Assignee: annevk@annevk.nl

http://encoding.spec.whatwg.org/ lists US-ASCII and equivalents (e.g., ASCII)
as an alias for "windows-1252".  This isn't correct, as Windows 1252 has
several code points above 127 that are not ASCII characters.  US-ASCII should
be kept distinct from Windows 1252, just as it should be kept distinct from
Latin-1 and all the other encodings that are extensions of US-ASCII.
