    initial v1  
    22> A byte order mark is an invisible neutral character as human-readable text goes, but it is nonetheless a character, and therefore included in a computer-readable text. Supporting it wold be possible, but verly low in my priority list, and only if it can be done in a generic way that does not require changing all parts of the code that read text files.

    4 Since I am also a programmer, though not a C programmer, I looked around a bit and found some code samples: https://workspaces.codeproject.com/user-8645021/reading-utf-8-with-c-streams. Since to download from there you need to register, I have also uploaded it to another place so you may download it http://www.mediafire.com/download/5hsc5h2j71avw1g/utf8code.zip.
    5 Also, shouldn't there be a separate function that gets called from all the places to read text files, so you would not have the same code repeated many times.
