I18N-ISSUE-59: BOM with utf-8 and/or utf-16 [Polyglot]

http://www.w3.org/International/track/issues/59

Raised by: Richard Ishida
On product: Polyglot

3. Character Encoding
http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-html-polyglot-20100624/#character-encoding

WG Approved: Yes


" 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.
