but in the meantime, the html5 crowd declared that iso-8859-1 is
identical to cp1252

I, too, think the crowd crazie, for other reasons besides: when I heard of this crowd I glanced at the website, and found great effort exerted on the meaning of strings that had been considered bad HTML, say text between <ol> and <li>, with the webbrowser free to make any interpretation of it. Furthermore, I looked for limitless nesting, as the deprecated <center> is allowed within <center>, to the webbrowser s limits, and found that such limitless nesting is not and never shall be part of HTML, right after claims that the element structure allows that--but only in style! Sounds as if one has to use something like MSoft Word to generate it, because Word well fakes nesting by means of indenting. Ugh.
