Subject: Unicode Byte Order Marks in ODF

Hi Dennis,

I'm of the Co-Chair of the OASIS ODF Technical Committee. Some time ago 
we received a comment from you regarding byte order marks:


We are currently going back to the public comments we received to see 
which ones we may address in the ODF 1.2 release, which we are currently 

As for the byte order marks, the situation is that the XML 1.0 
specification in section 4.3.3 already states that

"Entities encoded in UTF-16 MUST and entities encoded in UTF-8 MAY begin 
with the Byte Order Mark "


We therefore think that it is not required to state that again in the 
ODF specification.

Best regards
