      Description

      Following up to this thread from a few years ago,
      http://jthink.net/jaikozforum/posts/list/4509.page

      I'm still having issues with TIPL fields when they are encoded UTF-16.

      TIPL is a string of NULL seperated values. Jaikoz writes a unicode BOM in front of every value. Whereas Helium writes only one BOM at the front of the string. When Jaikoz reads such a tag, all values but the first show up as chinese letters.

      I think Jaikoz should read all values in a frame with the same byte order. I suspect this could be a problem for other text frames as well.

      Frames that allow different types of text encoding contains a text
      encoding description byte. Possible encodings:

      $00 ISO-8859-1 [ISO-8859-1]. Terminated with $00.
      $01 UTF-16 [UTF-16] encoded Unicode [UNICODE] with BOM. All
      strings in the same frame SHALL have the same byteorder.
      Terminated with $00 00.
      $02 UTF-16BE [UTF-16] encoded Unicode [UNICODE] without BOM.
      Terminated with $00 00.
      $03 UTF-8 [UTF-8] encoded Unicode [UNICODE]. Terminated with $00.
