POV-Ray fails to accept UTF-8 encoded files with a leading Byte Order Mark.
According to the code it was intended to recognize a leading BOM (or, more precisely, leading non-ASCII code sequences) and automatically switch to UTF-8, so this must be considered a bug rather than a missing feature.

Reason for closing: Fixed
Additional comments about closing: No news for half a year now; presumably fixed for good.
