Oh, sure! I forgot to check “Add a Unicode Signature (BOM)”.

But this check box was unchecked by default. Could you change this behavior?
I think Unicode BOM should be used almost in all cases. Notepad does. 😉

And why there is difference between Windows Vista and 2000/XP:
check box in 2000/XP and dropdown selection in Vista?

I think BOM is not generally used for UTF-8, and used for UTF-16. That’s why I should include with/without BOM in the Drop-down list for newer versions. Windows Vista uses the new styles for open/save, and there was not enough space for checkboxes, so I redesigned the way. I just did not want to make changes to the old styles.
