Every *new* HTML document, absolutely.  And if you're working on a
brand new site and you can be sure that all your content is new,
that's great.

*Old* HTML documents, however, get their style updated rather more
often than they get their encoding tampered with.  (In my opinion,
based on anecdotal evidence from web developers.)
