Comment: 
" Use UTF-8 or UTF-16 with the appropriate BOM. "


This could be read "use utf-8 with the appropriate BOM or UTF-16 with the
appropriate BOM", but a utf-8 bom (or signature) is not strictly necessary, and
some would argue that it may cause problems, and it's use should be discouraged
here.
