browser would be a better long term strategy.... in the short term,
the best tool for quick fixes to HTML pages *is* notepad, which is
what is being blamed for causing the problem. :-)
Has anyone worked to be positive that this is the cause of the errant
euro? With two simple UTF-8 encoded page (one with and one without the
BOM) ? I still have a hard time seeing how a BOM can cause a euro in
any way other than consulting fees.
