save file complains encoding incompatibility

i get the following message in emacs whenever i save some files:

Selected encoding mule-utf-16be-with-signature-unix disagrees with 
 utf-16-unix specified by file contents.  Really save (else edit coding 
 cookies and try again)? (yes or no) 

For example, this html file:

This behavior is very annoying. (because every 10 secs i save i have to type 
yes) Then, the 
message is not very helpful. For example, although i'm not a elisp programer 
but i've used 
emacs for 6 years for much of its features beyond text editing. It is not clear 
to me what the 
"cookies" referes to in this message, or how to turn the message off.
