Actually, if I would have read down further, it explicitly says "Yes,  
UTF-8 can contain a BOM. However, it makes no difference as to the  
endianness of the byte stream. UTF-8 always has the same byte order.  
An initial BOM is only used as a signature — an indication that an  
otherwise unmarked text file is in UTF-8."
