    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.
    My helpful sig is on vacation trying to loose some weight. It got a bit fat and caused a few problems but it will be back at some point!

    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
