See http://unicode.org/faq/utf_bom.html#bom1. It indicates the  
encoding that the file is written in, be it big-endian (most  
siginificant byte to least significant byte-- the way that we write,  
and the way the PowerPC stores numbers in memory), or little-endian  
(the reverse and the way intel processors store numbers in memory).
