hello.
thousands of people PHP programmers use Notepad++.
But notepad has very, very problematic issue, which is not fixed.
If i make a file in UTF8, then NOTEPAD adds BYTE-ORDER-MARK in the beggining of file, and it is not visually shown. and THAT MAKES SERIOUS PROBLEMS in php files ("header already sent...").
YOU WILL SAY, that "choose UTF8(without BOM)", but !!!!!!!!!!!!
90% of people dont know, why the problem is caused, and they dont know, what is BOM (i am programming 2 years, and just recently got known with BOM).

So, while someone openes a PHP file and chooses UTF8, please NOTEPAD!!!!!!!!!!!
Show an alert box, or something, to let user know, that in PHP, it adds characters in the beginning.
