Hi Richard,
AFAIS, the previous version of qa-byte-order-mark “The byte-order mark 
(BOM) in HTML” and the late qa-utf8-bom “Display problems caused by the 
UTF-8 BOM” have become the content of just one article: the current 
qa-byte-order-mark “The byte-order mark (BOM) in HTML”.

There are some problems:

(1) The same content is available under two different URIs 
http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-byte-order-mark and 
http://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-utf8-bom which is not good. 
It shold be a redirect from qa-utf8-bom to qa-byte-order-mark with HTTP 
status code 301 Moved Permanently.

(2) The article appears twice in the article list 
http://www.w3.org/International/articlelist#characters under different 

(3) Translations of qa-utf8-bom are lost. The link “Display problems 
caused by the UTF-8 BOM” leads to the content of “The byte-order mark 
(BOM) in HTML” for all translations, but there are no display problems 
featured in the article since translations of qa-byte-order-mark have 
only the original content.

The temporarily best solution might be to reinstall the translations of 
qa-utf8-bom [1] and to set up a redirect just for the English version, 
i.e. from qa-utf8-bom.en(.php) to qa-byte-order-mark.en(.php).

When translations of qa-byte-order-mark will be updated [2], set up a 
redirect for those languages as well.

[1] My old German translation of qa-utf8-bom attached, in case you need it.

[2] I have already asked you to send me the source file of the current 
version of qa-byte-order-mark.
