Opera 9.50 (Windows) fails for 5.3.x tests. Also it seens to fail at
2.2.2 eating the " simbol after the character, but it could be a
render error due the carrier error at 2.1.1 rendering NULL character.
Even I do not know it is should be considered OK the 2 chars render of
2.1.4 and 2.3.4, but again seens to be a render problem, not a decode
