I'v encountered what seems to be a bug in PHP Markdown v1.0.1k. Given
a UTF-8 with a BOM, the first line is not parsed.

A brief search revealed a bug report for a similar issue in python-

This isn't a major issue for me (I actually included the BOM by
mistake), but I haven't heard about it on this list before, so I'm
sharing it now.
