three funny character in *.js files

Postby EricM on Mon Oct 09, 2006 3:42 pm

Hi! First , I think the WYMeditor is *da-bomb* !!! It is very light-weight and gives just the right amount of functionality to the user without giving "too much" .

I plan to use your editor in several CMS websites, so I wrote a PHP wrapper so I can initialize, load all the included *.js files and setup the editor with a single Javascript statement like:
<script type="text/javascript" src=",width=767,height=500"></script>

My WYMsetup.php wrapper works perfectly , but each of the *.js files begin with three little hex characters : EF BB BF .

That causes problems in my PHP loader for all the *.js files. Are these three characters needed? I just took them all out of my files, but it would be nice if in future these three characters could "disappear".

Hi Eric,
These three characters represent the Byte Order Mark (BOM), which indicates that the file is encoded in UTF-8.
If there's no problem removing it from the js files (needs some testing), the fix will be available in the next release.
Thank you for your feedback!
