Entirely coincidentally, in another project I've had a bug report where
using notepad to write Java manifests would fail because the BOM at the
beginning of the file would be interpreted as a character, causing the
initial Version: field's name to change. I had to add special code to
detect them and strip them off.

They're a problem *everywhere*. Just Say No to BOMs.
