I think I don't know enough to ask the right question. A quick search
yesterday on byte order markers turned up
with this bit
Note Microsoft uses UTF-16, little endian byte order.
So... keep it simple, set
and use vi or something else that comes with cygwin to create the file
and I'll have a file with UTF-8 character encoding - correct?
