1. You can Save as UTF8 in Windows Notepad.

2. The BOM (Byte-Order-Mark) is a special two-byte prefix that is usually used with UTF16
to determine whether the two bytes of each 16-bit code are big-endian or little-endian.  Some
products (including Windows Notepad) also put a BOM on the front of UTF8 streams.  Some software
is hostile to it being there, other software accepts it and recognizes the following code
as UTF8 anyhow. You ran into a hostile case.

Since you don't see the BOM (it is on front of the file but is not treated as a character),
and you are on Windows, you need a text editor that doesn't produce them and also discards
any that it encounters.

I recommend an HTML editor.  If you prefer text raw editing, I think jEdit will work for.
 It is a Java application, available on SourceForge.  The Windows version of gedit will also
save text in UTF8.  That probably doesn't produce a BOM.  (It is difficult to know if one
is there or not without looking at the beginning of the file in a hex editor/viewer.)

I used win7 notepad first(it was coded as ASCII, which is wrong if I 
need to use accented characters, but I not was aware to this).
In second case in Notepad ++ when I converted from ASCII coding to 
UTF-8, and I think it was correctly coded, possibly I needs to be aware 
to another settings, which I don't know.
