    Description

      Using Eloy's grep trick on the lang files revealed a lot of BOM markers. I assume they don't cause any problems in html files, but I think that the php files can be a problem.

      For absolute vi dummies like me, the solution looks like
      grep -rl $'\xEF\xBB\xBF' * //Search folder and subfolders for BOM markers
      vim filename //opens file in vim
      :set nobomb //removes the BOM
      :w //saves the file with the same name
      :q //quit vim

      to perform on a *nix or a mac.
