Odd Characters at the top of the page

Post by DesignNorth » Wed Feb 24, 2010 8:09 pm

I have odd characters appearing at the top of the page before any code

displayed as

Its not any of my code and its appearing at the top of the page before any other code and it does not appear on our server, only the client server so I'm assuming WebYep is creating this problem.

Anyone had this issue before?

Your .php or .htm files are being saved with BOM (Byte Order Mark). Simply re-save your files without the BOM being set. (Use a robust text-editor that handles this).

Some primer info:

Or google for: Strange Characters Appearing in HTML.
