Martin,

     In [1], you submitted the following comments on the Last Call Working 
Draft of XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 Serialization on behalf of the I18N 
Working Group:

<<
[7] Section 3, 'encoding': Here or for each individual output method,
   something should be said about the BOM. We think it should be
   the following:
   - XML/XHTML: UTF-16: required; UTF-8: may be used.
   - HTML/text: UTF-16: recommended; UTF-8: may be used.

[8] Section 3, 'encoding': This should say that for UTF-16,
   endianness implementation-dependent (or implementation-defined)
>>

     Thanks to you and the I18N Working Group for these comments.

     The XSL and XML Query Working Groups discussed the comments, and 
decided to add a byte-order-mark parameter to the Serialization 
specification to control whether a Byte Order Mark is written.  The actual 
byte order used is implementation-dependent.  If the concept of a Byte 
Order Mark does not make sense for the particular encoding selected, the 
byte-order-mark parameter is ignored.

     May I ask you to confirm that this response is acceptable to the 
working group?

Thanks,

Henry [On behalf of the XSL and XML Query Working Groups]
