Well I just included the remark from the keyman project. So BOM means
byte order mark, I presume and as I understand GNU emacs supports it. 

I recall some time ago some specific issue of the hebrew or better bidi
implementation, like some missing feature which was only included
recently (by this I mean ~25 or later. I call it recently since Ubuntu
still ships officially GNU emacs 24).

I also thought that BOM is related to bidi, but since I have no much
idea about the implantation, I see that I was wrong. 

Thanks for the answer.

BTW is that a BOM ‏?
