    This means that *your* software (browser) behaves *exactly*
    in the way I expect for Google, too -- nothing else:

      Recognize the encoding information (charset) of the document
      and respect it.

    If the document has
    then you SHALL apply this charset value.

    You SHALL NOT look whether the author has a Chinese name,
    whether the document was published in Japan, etc. etc.

    Is this clear now?
