 Some products (including Windows Notepad) also put a BOM on the front of UTF8 streams.  Some
software is hostile to it being there, other software accepts it and recognizes the following
code as UTF8 anyhow. You ran into a hostile case.

if one is there or not without looking at the beginning of the file in a hex editor/viewer.)

In the note you say "If you use Notepad on WIndows you have several 
options for saving or converting to UTF. Choose the "UTF-8 without BOM" 
option" but this is not an option in notepad (at least in mine) but in 
Notepad++ which is not the windows one.
