Yes, they do. MS, contrary to W3 specifications, sniffs the content of a
page and chooses the encoding and ignores any server-specified encoding.
It also does this with MIME types. (Sorry, can't find the reference
right now). Real web browsers do not behave in this way, so you
shouldn't base your conclusions on the behavior of MSIE.
