Thanks, that's interesting, though websites I've so far looked at
aren't consistent on this point. The particular originator's email
Mime-Version: 1.0 (Mac OS X Mail 10.3 \(3273\))
X-Mailer: Apple Mail (2.3273)
suggesting that it's the Apple software that is not to standard in
coding the <meta> tag, but that seems surprising.

Yes, but in this case I think Netsurf might be expected to acknowledge
the charset attribute, so I've posted bug report 0002549 to
http://bugs.netsurf-browser.org/mantis/ in case developers can throw
any light on the issue.
