Edit plist files in OS X Server 10.5.7 for netboot

I am having an issue with Netboot that requires me to edit the NBImagesInfo.plist file to add some data... however, everytime I edit the file it removes it from the available NetBoot images in Server Admin.

I tried the following editors, TextEdit, TextWrangler and BBEdit...

Can anyone tell me what the best method for editing this file is to make sure Server Admin can read it?  It seems as though simply saving it as Plain Text Unicode UTF 8 isn't working.. and in BBEdit I left the UNIX (LF) setting in place.

I think there is also a Plist Editor which can be installed as part of the developer tools on the OS X installation disk.
