<p>Support for encodings based on EBCDIC is not recommended. This encoding
is rarely used for publicly-facing Web content.

<p>Support for UTF-32 is not recommended. This encoding is rarely used, and
frequently misimplemented.

<p class=note>This specification does not make any attempt to support
UTF-32 in its algorithms; support and use of UTF-32 can thus lead to
unexpected behavior in implementations of this specification.
