Apache should recognize UTF byte order mark (BOM) in cgi scripts

           Summary: Apache should recognize UTF byte order mark (BOM) in cgi
                    scripts
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.43
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: Other
         Component: mod_cgi
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: zeimusu@yahoo.co.uk


When saving a file as UTF-8 with Notepad under XP, notepad will insert a byte
order mark before the first character of the first line.
Apache then can't serve the script as it can't parse the magic first line, and
can't find perl (or whatever)

Workaround is not to save in UTF-8, or not to use Notepad, but apache should be
able to recognize byte order marks.

(related bug #11847, but that seems to be concered with xml)
