RFC 5987 "gobbledygook" works in all recent browsers except the one 
you're working on. It's the only thing that currently works almost 

I know you don't like it but please stop spreading FUD. RFC 5987 allows 
senders to send the same thing to all clients without UA sniffing. If 
you have a different proposal for which this is true please go ahead and 
write it down.

No, it does not "work". See 
<http://greenbytes.de/tech/tc2231/#attwithutf8fnplain>. So IE, Opera, 
and Konqueror decode as ISO-8859-1.
