Just to be clear, this is an HTML attribute of the <form> tag. For

<form action="foo" ... accept-charset="UTF-8">

This instructs the browser it should send the content of the form in the
accepted charset. As a default, it is recommended that user agents use
the encoding of the document, but this is not a strict requirement in
