Subject: Re: Charsets: Problem statement/requirements?

text/plain (28 lines)

How should numeric character references (&#nnn;) 
be interpreted in text/html; charset=something-other-than-latin1 ?

What if the MIME charset= parameter specifies 
a multibyte encoding?

Will this break the "Added Latin 1 for HTML" entity set,
which uses numeric character references to define all
the entities?

(Proposed solution: state that "The implied SGML declaration
used for HTML documents with a 'charset' parameter other than 
the default shall be chosen or constructed by the receiving party 
in an implementation-specific manner.  Therefore the use of numeric 
character references in such documents is strongly discouraged."

OK, so that's pretty weak...)
