That's not entirely true.  The most basic valid HTML document looks like

<title>Some Random Title</title>


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<title>Some Random Title</title>

That's it.  Three lines.  No HTML tag, no HEAD tag, no BODY or FRAMESET
tag.  They're all optional.  Of course, if you want to get really picky,
only one character is required to be in the TITLE; same goes for the
BODY, which is implied by the end of the HEAD, which is also implied,
and so on and so forth.  ;)

META tags are optional, which means charset specifications are optional,
as well.  I assume a default charset is sent by the server, anyway,
because my phpinfo() settings for my own server return "en-us" for
HTTP_ACCEPT_LANGUAGE, but I could be mistaken, because I never cared
about it because it was optional after all.  ;)
