[Loadstone] What's wrong with my data?

I can confirm this. I think these are the three characters that windows 
notepad and maybe other windows programs put at the beginning of a file to 
signify that it's utf8. I think the programs can be told not to do this. 
These characters at the beginning of the line will keep the file from being 
processed correctly by the importer since it's looking for the line starting 
with the word "table". You should also have a blank line at the end of your 
file to signify end of table. Since there's only one table in the file this 
isn't strictly needed but should be there anyway. Other than that everything 
looks like it should work. The priority value is set to 2, this means these 
points will be restricted. Is this the case or can these points be shared 
with others? If they can be shared then the priority value should be set to 
0. This will depend on where you got this data.
