Right; and also including (forgot to mention it last time) the BOM
in the case of UTF-16 dialects.  To me, the single most troubling thing 
in the discourse over the last few months is that the IETF is seriously
considering a registration for UTF-16[LB]E which *forbids* the use of 
the BOM.  Poor Martin Duerst has invested immense amounts of time and 
effort trying to persuade people that this is actually not rank insanity, 
but he's finding the going tough. -Tim
