Project and Library XML
LabVIEW lvproj files are UTF-8LE (or Little-Endian) encoded, see Endianness. This means there is a Byte Order Mark (BOM) prepended to the beginning of the file. Many text editors will remove the BOM bytes because UTF-8 encoding usually doesn't have a BOM. However, utf-16 and above should. By removing the BOM, the lvproj file will become corrupted.
