Irregular BOM Code in text file triggers font change

  • I use current Notepad++ v6.9.2 with fixed width font Courier New and wondered about some text lines showing up with proporitional font (Sample file).

    After some investigation I found that the reason for the font change is an irregular BOM code (FF FE) at the beginning of the line. Is this a bug or feature of Notepad?

    Btw. the irregular BOM code was generated by a CygWin bash command appending text to that file.
