Description

I ran into this issue when trying to build Microsoft's Ajax library, a "?" character was found at the beginning of each file.

I'll take another crack at this. iirc, when we had ant-based builds, there was a java bug that prevented us from seeing the BOM as it was decoded. maybe it had something to do with the ant embedding?

see #1660
