Notepad in Microsoft Windows XP includes a byte-order mark (BOM) at the 
beginning of files saved in UTF-8 encoding. If such files are run through 
the CSS validator, the validator says, for example:

Target: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~kshawkin/talks/20050513.ru.html
Please, validate your XML document first!

Line 1

Column 1

Content is not allowed in prolog.

I believe this content is allowed in the prolog; if not, the XHTML 
validator should alert users to this (it currently does not).
