Eclipse UTF8 without BOM (Byte order Mark)

Last Modified: 2013-12-15
I'm using Eclipse along with the PDT plugin (php development tools) and PHP or Apache doesn't play nice with UTF8 unless there is not BOM (Byte order Mark).

This makes no sense because i don't see an option in eclipse workspace preferences to set UTF8 WITHOUT BOM. only UTF8 (BOM)

Does anybody know how i can set eclipse to use UTF8 without BOM? This has been bugging me for a long time now, HELP :(
