Determines the encoding of the specified file from its byte order mark.

When a user creates a text template, they can specify the encoding that they want the text template host to use to create the generated text. If the user does not specify the encoding, the host can try to determine the encoding of the text template. The host can then use the same encoding to create the generated text.
