Hi Tobias,

It's great to hear it's working without a BOM. Although we might need
to ignore the BOM, it's not very logical to include a BOM in a UTF-8
file since it doesn't have endian-issues (AFAIK), it being an 8-bit
format.

Having said that, Branko, how about ignoring a BOM to any input file
we expect to be UTF-8?

bye,

Erik.
