An updated version of Declaring character encodings in HTML[1] is out 
for review at


We are looking for comments before 7 March. Please send comments to 

After the review period is over, this content will be copied to the same 
location as the current version of the document, ie.


and the URL of the updated version will cease to exist.

The update brings the article in line with recent developments in HTML5, 
and de-emphasizes information about legacy formats.

An attempt was also made to organize the material so that readers can 
find information more quickly, and also de-clutter the essential 
information by moving edge topics, such as UTF-16 and charset links, 
down the page. This led to the article being almost completely rewritten.
