Which of course means that a browser may have issues while still dealing okay
with UTF-16 if the correct headers are sent.
The interesting thing here as regards to the original concern that UTF-16 wasn't
in the list of user-selectable encodings is that IE6 on Windows dealt with the
page correctly, and looking at the encoding list there was a greyed-out
encoding selected that isn't normally in the list for UTF-16 (actually it
referred to it as "Unicode" and "Unicode (Big Endian)" depending on which of
the two pages I viewed.
