That's all well and good, except that you gave the file an extension
of .utf8, which wouldn't be the final deployment scenario (I hope), and
which isn't a well-recognized extension on most systems I know. UTF-8
plain text, like any other plain text, usually has the extension .txt.
For this to be really realistic, can you resend with .txt?
