This isn't really a PHP question but I couldn't find the right place for it.
I'm getting these strange characters - ï»¿ï»¿ï»¿ï»¿ - in my source code before the Doctype tag.
I've encountered this before when working in Notepad++ using ANSI as UTF-8 or similar formats with BOM for encoding. Usually converting the files to UTF-8 solves the problem but it isn't this time.
I've even gone so far as to open all the files in gEdit on a Linux box and save them as UTF-8 and Linux end of line but to no avail. That garbage keeps showing up in my Linux or Windows development environments.
Any other ideas would be most welcome.
