if the files are UTF-8 encoded, the BOM is optional & really has no meaning 
(there's only the one byte order direction in UTF-8). if a BOM is present it 
*has* to be at the start of the text stream. if the files are intended as ASCII 
then the BOM shouldn't be in there at all (ASCII chars are represented as 
themselves in UTF-8 anyway).
