I wish to know the answer, too. Currently I use a hex editor to remove or add the BOM manually.

Suggestion:

Quote:
If you look at your UTF-8 file in a text editor such as Emacs, you see that the first character is a strange blob. You can remove it with a Control-D and save the file. Everything should work fine without the BOM.

Two other interesting links:
http://unicode.org/faq/utf_bom.html (search down to "Byte Order Mark (BOM) FAQ")

'Hope that helps .. PSM
