[whatwg] Resolving a URL

Time to send some feedback on the "resolve a URL" dfn.
Step 3 is (currently) "If encoding is UTF-16, then change it to
UTF-8.". Does this mean we literally change just "encoding" to UTF-16,
and leave "url" verbatim, or are we meant to change "url" to UTF-8
too? This is currently ambiguous. Not changing "url" will cause issues
later in a UTF-16 document.
Step 12 replaces \ with /. IIRC WebKit does this for all URLs, not
just those with a "server-based naming authority" (what's that anyway?).
Also, earlier in the "Resolving URLs" section, there should probably
be a ref. to XMLBASE.
