We do not inherit the charset from parent frame to make Google Images (and
Google Cache) work better, see bug 6118. This also fixes sites that use
User-Agent sniffing to choose an encoding (e.g. the main frame's server may
send x-mac-cyrillic to Safari, while a subframe may rely on the browser default
being windows-1251, as that's the Windows Cyrillic encoding).

We also match Firefox here. So, although it's a regression from shipping
Safari/WebKit for this site, I think it's an evangelism issue.
