That's what Gecko does, certainly.  Though in this case it asserts in a 
debug build about input not actually being UTF-8, because it uses a 
conversion function that doesn't do replacement char bits.

I'm not sure why it never hits the alert.  A similar testcase not inside 
the live dom viewer works just fine.
