Subject RE: [FALCON] Problem with \uFEFF chararcters in mustella files

I believe a BOM is only a BOM if it's at the beginning of the file. So I think Falcon is correct
to complain and the files should be fixed.

I may have found the problem. It looks like there are files where the BOM isn't at the beginning
of a file and thats the case where falcon can run into problems.
