nginx is 8-bit clean and doesn't care what you include.  It can 
happily include even binary files.

I guess your problem is that something after nginx isn't happy 
with utf-8 bom in the middle of the text.  Not sure if it's 
allowed according to utf-8 spec, but anyway it doesn't looks like 
nginx problem for me.
