PSPad, a nice, small freeware editor, has a feature that allows you open a file directly in its Hex Editor, bypassing any transcoding of the file. This allows you to truly see the "bytes on disk". By default, if you open a file and switch to its "Hex Edit Mode", you get the same thing as UltraEdit, i.e., a hexadecimal view of the file transcoded to UTF-16 in the editing buffer. I regularly use its Hex Editor feature to "debug" misencoded XML and in checking XSLT output. Highly recommended, just for that feature alone.
