Looks OK.  I would suggest removing the commented out code from the test before you push to the workspace

The cause of the failure was that the parser was actually implemented to abide by the XML specification that required entities encoded in UTF-16 to begin with BOM. The test we used sent a byte array to the parser without BOM, thus failed.
