There is no BOM. The specifications clearly states it "uses UTF-16, 
little endian, and the Byte-Order Marker (BOM) character is not present"

What I'm confused is to why Iconv coudlnt convert it. Does Iconv expects 
for the BOM, even when I specify UTF16LE, which would make it explicit 
the byte order?
