            Bug ID: 24337
           Summary: Authors should be able to use both "utf8" and "utf-8"
                    labels, case-insensitively
           Product: WHATWG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Encoding
          Assignee: annevk@annevk.nl

Currently the spec says: 'Authors must use the utf-8 encoding and must use the
"utf-8" label to identify it.'

Given the label matching is done case-insensitively, it is not entirely clear
whether authors must use this label case-sensitively or not. This should be
clarified, preferably to allow either case (there is no practical benefit of
requiring it to be lowercased).

We should also make the "utf8" label conforming. Making this non-conforming is
of no practical benefit and makes a large number of documents non-conforming.
