[DCSV-7] data.csv does not handle BOMs Created: 12/Aug/13 Updated: 25/May/17 Resolved: 25/May/17

Usually Windows (but also Linux)
Sometimes BOMs are prepended to files in Microsoft Land. Data.csv does not handle this edge case, which causes the first field in the header of a csv file to be incorrect. This can be hard to detect, since \ufeff is usually invisible.

This isn't really a csv specific problem. I've encountered files with a byte order mark and then I have simply executed (.skip reader 1) before handing the reader over to read-csv. Is this not a good enough solution?

Instead of adding support for this, I added some docs on how to achieve it without changing data.csv
