    I'm using the latest cPanel through my host. I usually uses an FTP, Filezilla to make changes to my files but occasionally when it's minor, I use the cPanel code editor. I've been doing this for over a year and eventhough it's recommend on the phpBB support board not to use cPanel code editor (phpBB message boards have to be saved as UTF8 without BOM). Sometimes the cPanel don't have the correct encoding and I have to to choose UTF8 in the dropdown (so I can see that you can mess up your file if unaware).

    My question is this, there's 2 UTF8 in the code editor (UTF-8 and UTF-8-strict), I use UTF-8 for my files and I want to know if it saves the file without BOM? I search for this answer all over the net and it's been asked several times but it has not been answered. Since cPanel have this editor built-in, I belive it save the the UTF-8 files without BOM since it's recommended but I want to make sure and finally get this question answered.
