Character encoding

The solution listed here is spot on:

I believe what the solution did was change the encoding from UTF-8 to ANSI. The issue is Visual Studio saves most (all?) files as UTF-8, so i believe any user that creates the _redirects file in visual studio will experience this issue. Perhaps updated guidance on the _redirects documentation to warn about this issue, or maybe enhance the server side code.
