See the answer to this question here:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4520184/how-to-detect-the-character-encoding-of-a-text-file

There's some info on invalid byte sequences for UTF8 here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UTF-8#Invalid_byte_sequences

Hopefully we won't need to worry about this stuff much in LC 7+ which I believe will have encoding detection built in.

Cheers
