    In Summary?

    Well, in summry, I fail to see how testing for NCRs has anything to do with
    suport of *any* encoding in a browser. It seems like an inadequate test of
    functionality of "gb18030" support.

    If you want to test gb18030 support, then please encode a web page in
    gb18030 and test *that* in the browser of your choice.

    Now if you want to discuss NCR support then that may also be interesting.
    But it would be nice to have tests that actually cover what they claim to
