UTF-8 BOM encoding

This issue will be resolved in our next update. I apologize for any inconvenience this issue has caused you.
Have you tried this on 6.7.5?
Try using the Beta and see if it is corrected in there. You can install it on another machine if you do not want to put it on the machine that you are using for church.
EasyWorship doesn't handle some text encodings correctly. It is interpreting the first three bytes (EF BB BF) as "ï»¿" It also mangles certain characters such as angled quotes.
You can reproduce this easily by creating a text file in NotePad++ using the UTF-8 BOM encoding. Import it into the song library and you'll see something like the attached screenshot.
This thread helped me understand what was happening.
