Chomp your PHP for good health.
We had some weird problems in testing one of our applications today. It turned out to be a newline after a ?> tag in a core config php file, so anything being outputted was preceded by a newline. Normally this isn't much of a problem--web browsers don't care that much about whitespace. Pickier clients, however, got thrown off and would complain about data being corrupt.
