Last time I checked, the media-type RFC for > UTF16-LE and -BE *forbade* the use of a BOM entirely. You're saying the same thing in different words. UTF-16BE and UTF-16LE forbid the use of a BOM, and therefore any U+FEFF that appears is necessarily a ZWNBSP. (This use of U+FEFF is deprecated as of Unicode 3.2, however). Naturally, XML files can't begin with a ZWNBSP. -- John Cowan http://www.ccil.org/~cowan cowan@c... To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all.
