Anyone out there with Macs and the TextMate editor know how to make it save files always in ASCII, and never let it turn on smart quotes, smart dashes, and smart copyright symbol? There's a client I work with who has this, and when his file gets saved in Unicode mode like this, the PHP session variables don't work because the host headers get messed up with the Unicode content that follows. In fact, if I do this at the top of the file...
<?php die('test'); ?>
...the output on the web server becomes the word test with the Unicode BOM (Byte Order Mark) in front of it, which looks like this...
When I inspect his file with a hex editor, I find the BOM as the first character, and then find smart quotes (the left and right curled quotes, either double or single), smart dashes (replaces -- with the long dash like —), and the copyright, trademark, and registered trademark symbols become Unicode equivalents instead of using
