    No byte-order mark (no-bom)

    no-bom warns against having the byte-order mark (BOM) character at the beginning of a text file.

    Why is this important?

    Having the BOM character at the beginning of a file over the internet (especially HTML) can have some bad side effects on some browsers. The BOM character can be used to indicate the charset of the content is UTF-8 but this doesn't mean it will be considered. For example, Internet Explorer 10 and 11 give a higher precedence to the HTTP header while previous versions gave the precedence to BOM for the encoding.

    What does the hint check?

    This hint checks that all text-based media type files are served without the BOM character at the beginning.

    Examples that trigger the hint

    A text file (such as HTML) that starts with the BOM character U+FEFF will fail.

    Examples that pass the hint

    A text file (such as HTML) that doesn't start with the BOM character U+FEFF will pass.

    How to use this hint?

    This package is installed automatically by webhint:

    npm install hint --save-dev

            ...
