    Prepending it if it doesn't exist is a good idea! It's just annoying to have to do all these 'workarounds' for something that seems so simple.

    In the messages I've exchanged with Yves it seems MMF Unicode can't read UTF-8 encoded files, it can only read "Unicode" or "UCS-2 Little Endian".

    Oops, yeah, you want UTF-16 for MMF Unicode. My bad.
    Just prepend 0xFF 0xFE then (aka 255 254).
    UCS-2 was deprecated by UTF-16 in July 1996, but it holds 96.9% similarity to UTF-16.

    If it's killing you, why don't you try and make an example of it to test? :P
