We lazy English speakers never see these problems ;-)

But seriously folks, I am not certain now which programs actually use
(and need) the BOMs, which ones recognise the xml UTF-8 headers, and
which ones don't understand and delete the BOM anyway.

FWIW I had just written a small console app which checks whether a BOM
exists and (optionally) adds one if missing.

CheckBOM tortoisesvn\doc\source\de\*.xml
OK Pubdate.xml
OK tme_appa.xml
OK tme_appb.xml
OK tme_ch00.xml
OK tme_ch01.xml
OK tme_ch02.xml
Missing tme_glossary.xml
OK tortoisemerge.xml
OK tortoisesvn.xml
Missing tsvn_app_automation.xml
OK tsvn_app_faq.xml
Missing tsvn_basics.xml
Missing tsvn_introduction.xml
Missing tsvn_preface.xml
OK tsvn_server.xml
Missing wishlist.xml

There are also a lot missing from tsvn_dug\*.xml

Ironically, all the english docs have BOMs already, even though they
don't need them.

Should I add another option to remove BOMs? ;-) Or shall I add BOMs to
the german docs?
