Under 
http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-html-encoding-declarations-new#httphead 
it now reads:
»»
Use HTTP headers if it makes sense,
««

This might sound as if one had a choise to use or not to use a _HTTP 
header_. (When transmitting ressources over HTTP, there’s always a HTTP 
header.)

Either: Use HTTP headers _for encoding declaration_ if it makes sense,

Or: Use _encoding declarations in_  HTTP headers if it makes sense,


Under 
http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-html-encoding-declarations-new#utf16 
it says:
»»
Furthermore, if your page is encoded as UTF-16, do not declare your file 
to be "UTF-16BE" or "UTF-16LE", use "UTF-16" only.
««

Is it clear enough that this paragraph relates to declarations in the 
HTTP header, not in meta declarations? Even though the previous 
paragraph mentioned not to use meta declarations for UTF-16, it could be 
made clearer.
