Addition info.:
The default charset is not highlighted and you can not manually highlight this
default charset by click on the charset, mark you feel the charset is not selected.

This is a regression between 01-08 and 01-14.

Nominate as nsbeta1.

I would suggest selecting the charset that the current document is using.
Note also that if that is selected, then maybe the Ok button should be disabled
(no point in trying to change to what it is)?

This is a display problem. I think it got select but we dont' show it.
If I select other charset, it will highlight but if I try to select the current
one, it won't show the highlight. nsbeta1+ per tirage meeting

By the way, the <tree> used to construct the charset list should now be replaced
by the new <listbox> that hewitt finished. It's a lot easier to use and greatly
simplifies the XUL! I've used in in EditorPublishSettings.xul, .js if you want to 
see a simple example.

I think the situration got improved. At least now it is possible to select and
hightlight the default charset. It will still not pre select the current charset
but user CAN select it
I think we could nsbeta1- it with the current situration

Notice this is another new problem that we haven't had before:
When you select Save As Charset, it used to point to the current/default charset
positon of the charsets list, but now no matter what current/default charset is,
the dialog always come up with the charset list from begining (Arabic) even
current charset is western, with no charset is highlighted.
