    Hi list,

    I have some questions on the ZWNBS. While I don't actually need this
    myself, someone I know needs this.

    > Where? Specifically, where does it say FEFF shouldn't be in a string?
    > Certainly, FEFF shouldn't be considered a BOM anywhere but at the start
    > of a string, but does it say you just can't use that value? And if so,

    I'm thinking that 0xFEFF shouldn't be in a UTF16BE string, except at
    the start right?

    For other kinds of UTF, I'm not sure if it is allowed or not. I know it
    is allowed in UTF16LE, although discouraged.

    Instead of "can't use ZWNBS", I think that char is discouraged. Where
    is the rule that discourages it?

    CC me directly please?
