No, I just used Windows Notepad (on Windows XP) to create the file,
and saved it with UTF-8 encoding from the drop-down menu.

Here is a hexdump:

  $ xxd
  0000000: efbb bf5c 7665 7273 696f 6e20 2232 2e31  ...\version "2.1
  0000010: 322e 3122 0d0a 0d0a 7b20 6320 7d         2.1"....{ c }

I see the BOM mark (ef bb bf), two DOS-style line endings (0d 0a), and
no newline at the end of file.
