You have a BOM marker at the beginning of these files. I don't know 
where they come from (which template) but this is usually related to 
editing an UTF8 file with an editor that adds this marker at the 
beginning of the file upon saving it. Editors usually skip this marker 
that only informs that file is in UTF8 format. However having it makes 
it appear on any web output. To remove it, either choose the option not 
to include this marker in the file or use a _very_ basic text editor 
(best command-line) to remove it manually.
