Bugzilla – Bug 19623
Make the BOM override HTTP for scripts
Last modified: 2013-02-06 23:11:00 UTC
In order to
* Make the fix for https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=687859 compliant
* Make scripts consistent with text/html
* Make script decoding consistent with the Encoding Standard
…please make the BOM take precedence over HTTP charset for scripts.
Current spec state comes from https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=10656 which disagrees with Opera, Chrome and IE7.
cc'ing bz since this was changed for Gecko on his request.
I don't really care about encoding issues anymore, in an effort to preserve what's left of my sanity. ;)
Checked in as WHATWG revision r7701.
Check-in comment: Revert part of r5545 because bz changed his mind and this matches reality better. :-)
