      Subject: UnicodeFileResourceLoader to support Win2k Notepad UTF-8 files
      Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

      I discovered, that files saved with Win2k Notepad UTF-8 format always generated
      an extra ? character at the start of ISO-8859-1 output text.

      This was due to lack of UTF8 BOM mark support in
      InputStreamReader/OutputStreamWriter classes.

      I then created a inputstream implementation to skip BOM mark to overcome this
      bug.

      Please, find here a source + testprogram to see it for yourself. I created
      UnicodeFileResourceLoader to make all this transparent.

      I dont know what is the proper procedure to add this to Velocity core (if you
      find this useful), but here it is. Feel free to change class package. Or is
      this even the right list to announce such addition....

      Here is a link to Sun bugparade about the UTF-8 BOM problem:
