           Summary: charset ignored in enctype attribite of form element
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Forms
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: andrejohn.mas at gmail.com

If I specify the following:

<form action="" method="post" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded;
charset=utf-8" accept-charset="utf-8">

I find what is actually sent to the HTTP server is:

content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded

The charset is stripped from the content-type.

As a comparative test I checked with Opera which is sending the charset.
Additionally if I read RFC2616 section 3.7.1, there is provision for allowing
the character set to be specified.

I am not sure whether to see this issue as a bug that needs fixing, or an
