    [erix]: (SCNR)
    [ELISHEVA]: I may have to resort to SOPW - but was hoping that this would be something simple
    [erix]: I'd just remove the BOM, it is pretty simple
    [ELISHEVA]: Simple yes. and I did consider that. but this isn't one off . An important data source that I don't control is generating bom prefixed utf8 files and I'd rather not have to be munging files every few months.
    [erix]: on teh other hand a SOPW is pretty much garanteed to get an answer from tux (and probably the module fixed)
    [ELISHEVA]: plus it bugs me that something that *should* be simple, *should* work- unicode and noms aren't exactly the new kids on the block
    [ELISHEVA]: well then since the obvious possible mistakes on my part have been ruled out, SOPW it is.
    [ELISHEVA]: the data source, or one of them, is the OECD - they provide a *lot* of data that ought to be easily available to perl programmers.
    [erix]: it might be cunning to mention the module in the title... :)
    [ELISHEVA]: fancy that - a title that actually describes the problem :-)
