I saved one of my web pages today on my mac, saved it as html file, opened in mac's text edit application and found the following characters at the very start of the file
this is apparently a BOM and I"m guessing is what is causing my browser to show it as plain text locally (still having NO problems online, off the server, only locally)
My text editor I use on my Win laptop doesn't show this at all, but Mac's Text Edit does.
1. Is this the problem?
2. How do I do a search and replace for a "character" my text editor doesn't see?
3. How did this BOM get there yet when I create and encode new pages in utf-8, I don't seem to have a problem?
This is continuing to frustrate the living daylights out of me, which is why I'm continuing to dig into it. This seems like progress.
this part of the BOM wiki page seems to suggest problems caused by its presence:
