I would like to add:
Remove the following obsolete and silly warning.

 Byte-Order Mark found in UTF-8 File.

 The Unicode Byte-Order Mark (BOM) in UTF-8 encoded files is known
 to cause problems for some text editors and older browsers.
 You may want to consider avoiding its use until it is better supported.
