    The Byte-Order mark is optional, and discouraged in the UTF-8 encoding; but the Unicode specification is clear that it is allowed -- if you read the Unicode Standard v4, section 2.6, and Table 2.3, and section 15.9, and table 15.3; it is clear that the BOM is allowed at the start of a UTF-8 file. It so happens that this is the way Windows NotePad saves files when you select UTF-8; and Maven will not parse it. I'll attach a small POM saved this way, and I'll put it into a ZIP file to hopefully preserve the encoding. Here is the Maven output: [INFO] Scanning for projects...
