[Mono-devel-list] Problems with UTF-8 Decoder

Sorry I now checked: FEFF is the ZERO WIDTH NO-BREAK SPACE that is
also used as Byte Order Marker, what normally entails it to be
eliminated if it is the first unicode character in a text stream, but
it sure should be preserved by the encoder/decoder.
About the character: http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/feff/index.htm
I was confusing a bit with the surrogate pairs that utf-16 uses to
represent larger codepoints. See:
