--- Comment #21 from Anne <annevk@annevk.nl> ---
Paul, in http://encoding.spec.whatwg.org/#names-and-labels we have 'Authors
must use the utf-8 encoding and must use the ASCII case-insensitive "utf-8"
label to identify it.' The standard offers no options other than utf-8. Using
charset=us-ascii is already non-conforming and the browser is encouraged to
alert web developers of this fact through the error console. Validators will do
so as well.
