@charset has no effect on stylesheet??

State:
CLOSED
Product:
css-syntax
Raised by:
Richard Ishida
Opened on:
2013-12-19
Description:
http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-syntax/#charset-rule
8.2 The @charset Rule

Not clear why the spec says that the @charset rule has no effect on the stylesheet, given that it is used to determine the fallback encoding.

Related notes:

I believe this issue can now be closed. The CSS folks have explained why a byte-centric approach works best for encoding detection, and have made changes to the spec to explain the difference between an '@charset rule' and an 'encoding declaration'.
