How do you transfer your files and the css files to the webserver?  
With an FTP program?
Maybe your program, you normally use to transfer such files to the  
webserver, is configured to add the BOM? In such case: is it possible  
to configure it in your FTP program?
Or does IIS/ASP.NET engine itself automatically add the BOM,  
immediately the file arrives on the webserver (I couldn't believe that)?

Maybe helpful for you, maybe not:
