While importing the Firefox translations in Ubuntu to be included in
language packs, we noticed that there is an error in the Brazilian
Portuguese translation that prevents the import. Here is the error
message in the Launchpad XPI checker:

chrome/pt-PT/locale/branding/brand.dtd: Illegal construct

This seems to do with some extra bytes that appear at the beginning of
the file, which can be seen with a hex editor.

It would be great if the Brazilian Portuguese team could have a look at
it, which would allow to import and ship the translation in Ubuntu.

Reproducible: Always

That looks like the UTF-8 BOM mark at the beginning of the file
