enter image description here

The symbol I'm having problems with is the one highlighted above in the red circle.

My code is the following:

§eRIP Jeremiah!

§eOverlord of green pricks!

§eI'm a grape!

§eHiro is top dog!

§ePromoted to regional manager!

The file is saved as "splashes.txt" encoded as UTF-8-BOM in Notepad++ This symbol only shows up on the first line Subsequent lines do not have this issue If I move them all down a line then the symbol is still there, just appears on it's own

Can anyone enlighten me to the problem I'm having here?


For those who need this answer, you need to set the encoding of the txt file to UTF-8 not UTF-8-BOM. This will fix the issue.
