Re: UTF-16 Encoding Scheme and U+FFFE

An interesting use of a U+FEFF character used as a BYTE ORDER MARK is its use in the file format described as Unicode Text Document which one may choose when using Save As... in the Microsoft WordPad program.

I have used that file format in my research.

It is interesting to produce such a file and then examine the contents at a byte by byte level, understanding the use of the BYTE ORDER MARK.
