Have you read the file content? It clearly and explicitly speaks about
UTF-16, which has nothing to do in a text file for UTF-8, unless the file
was used as a test for CESU-8 (which is not UTF-16 as well, and not even
UTF-8). My statement was correct: it is based on the fact that the test file
was created for the older (RFC version) of UTF-8 used in old versions of ISO
10646, and never referenced (at least explicitly until the v4.01
clarification) by Unicode in any version.
