Prerequisites: The default encoding for the browser you are testing must not be set to ISO 8859-15.

meta charset attribute

Test passes if you see green.

Assertion: Setting the encoding in the meta charset attribute will affect the encoding of an HTML5 page.

Notes:

The only character encoding declaration for this HTML file is in the charset attribute of the meta element, which declares the encoding to be ISO 8859-15.

The test contains a div with a class name that contains the following sequence of bytes: 0xC3 0xBD 0xC3 0xA4 0xC3 0xA8. These represent different sequences of characters in ISO 8859-15, ISO 8859-1 and UTF-8. The external, UTF-8-encoded stylesheet contains a selector .test div.ÜÀÚ. This matches the sequence of bytes above when they are interpreted as ISO 8859-15. If the class name matches the selector then the box will turn green.
