I'm sorry: I never write the BOM. Obviously, because pdflatex will
choke on it. Sorry for the typo.
I don't know how BBedit keeps track of the text encoding: probably a
lot of heuristics, special markers (Emacs style comments and such). It
may even keep a list of files with the encoding somewhere in the
application support or preferences.
