The facts that you chose to ignore are:
1. From the normative section of the Specification referred above:
| […] user agents must not assume any default value for the "charset"
| To sum up, conforming user agents must observe the following priorities
| when determining a document's character encoding (from highest priority to
| * An HTTP "charset" parameter in a "Content-Type" field.
| * A META declaration with "http-equiv" set to "Content-Type" and a value

| * The charset attribute set on an element that designates an external
There is no HTTP header field "Content-Type" here, and no external resource,
so it is wise to declare the character encoding with a META element.

intentionally misquoted the other one in order to make his point? Who
insulted and then tried to make an evasive action to e-mail?
