Re: ITP: libi18n-charset-perl


I checked the differences between the two version of Charset.pm and
the authors of wdg-html-validator have indeed modified this module.
The code is still the same but they've added some seven character

I'll ask the upstream author of I18N::Charset to add these sets to the 
module (and explain the situation).  In the mean time I'll add them to 
the I18N::Charset module in my package so that my package doesn't harm
your package.
