> Hi there,
> I am having trouble to switch with an i18n project to utf-8. The problem
> is, that php has trouble with files that are saved in UTF-8 with BOM. It
> is causing strange bahavior like adding extra headers. On the other hand
> most editors only save UTF-8 with BOM.
> Has somebody experienced the same problem? How did you overcome it?
