What is the best fit charset for XHTML 1.0 Strict?

Basically for xhtml 1.0 strict is charset="utf-8" but in my case the w3c validator although my website passed in validation but has error regarding this error:

"Byte-Order Mark found in UTF-8 File.

The Unicode Byte-Order Mark (BOM) in UTF-8 encoded files is known to cause problems for some text editors and older browsers. You may want to consider avoiding its use until it is better supported. "

What is the best way to remove that error? UTF-8 reliable enough? or there are few charset out there that is more reliable than utf-8?
Thanks.

It has nothing to do with the charset and utf-8 is the best charset to use.
The BOM is inserted by your editor and you have to remove it. It's a few bytes at the beginning of the text. You might be able to remove it by just deleting it in your editor if you can see it. Otherwise, you need to look at your editor settings and tell it either to not insert the BOM when it saves as utf-8 or just save the text as ascii.

I try it by saving as in notepad but the encoding has only few option, namely ANSI, Unicode, Unicode big endian and UTF-8, were can I find the ascii?
