We have some hand crafted XML files we use for various rss needs. Whenever a dev updates the file, SharePoint Designer adds an UTF-8 byte order mark to the beginning of the file causing some parsers to complain about it. Currently, I can open the file in vim or a hex editor and remove the mark, but is there a way to make SharePoint Designer not do this?
Edit: Were using SharePoint Designer 2007. However, we do plan to upgrade to SharePoint 2010 later, so if there is any insight there, I would be very appreciative.
