Question

'Page Info' doesn't support HTML5 'meta charset' tag?

Admittedly this isn't a catastrophic problem, but it seems that the Firefox 'Page Info - General' dialog does not support HTML5's '<meta charset="UTF-8">' tag - the dialog displays an empty line in my Firefox 21.0 browser.

If the meta charset tag is changed to the pre-HTML5 version of '<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"> the Page Info dialog displays the 'Content-type' information.

Other posts I've seen suggest that Firefox's HTML5 support has been frozen except for new HTML5 standards that may be added as they are finalised.

Does that mean that this omission is going to be left unfixed?
