    Notepad++ also has an option to use UTF-8 without bom. Not that I even have any idea what bom is (I really should look that up sometime). Anyway glad to hear it's sorted.
    I can't really think of anything to write here now...

    Byte order marks.
    I'm not sure how programs really determine the usage; the wiki entry indicates that utf8 doesn't require them and does not comment on if its recommended for or against their use. Presumably I would gather that the utf8 would be the standard, and just ansi ascii would be utf8 encoded so it appears per normal in a utf8 charset file. I love that the article explicitly mentions PHP and what bom will do to the http headers.
    Lols what a pain.

    Oh, best I know notepad doesn't have a non-bom utf8 option. Could be wrong though.

    It certainly does


    Thats how I got around the problem you helped me out with a while back. It took a while but when I uploaded eventually I noticed the problem didn't persist on a linux server but on my windows wamp I couldn't get around it - no idea how that works
