[Full-disclosure] Firefox explicit charset inheritance

I found that Firefox 2.0.0.10 will inherit the charset of the parent
page, when that had been selected manually (does not inherit the charset
specified in headers or meta). I found this inheritance to work both
with [a href] links and [iframe src] in the parent page.
