    This is not an answer, but maybe a hint is contained in here. I think there is some theorem that will let you prove a square integrable function on a finite interval is absolutely integrable on that interval, and that demands a certain smoothness of the function. The integral of any smooth function multiplied by an infinite frequency sinusoid must be zero.
