[Bug 2519] Byte-order-mark is compulsory in XML for UTF-16


------- Additional Comments From mrys@microsoft.com  2005-11-14 07:12 -------
If the environment into which you serialize the data does guarantee the UTF-16 
encoding (such as specific string types in some programming languages and 
databases), there is no reason to require the BOM. It actually could make 
further processing more complex. Also note that the XML parsers allow for the 
encoding to be provided through external means.
