I figured it out... by myself, thanks!

The file must have the correct BOM (Byte Order Mark) as the first few (2 at least) bytes in the file so the indexer (and other unicode aware programs like NotePad) can decode it correctly. If the unicode *** is in UTF-16 Little Endian format, then the file must begin with 0xFFFE as the first two bytes.
