Depends on how widespread the usage is and I would expect new pages to
use utf-8. Any usage of "mscp932" should have turned up by now as it
would be a competitive disadvantage for other browsers not to support
that in case of widespread usage.

Somewhat related question while we're here, how much sniffing does
Internet Explorer for Japanese? And are the fine details documented
someplace? (More general sniffing information would also be welcome.
It seems we can probably get away with most heuristics, but there's
still a few that browsers employ that seem hard to kill.)
