|Guillemets and UTF-8 encoding on Windows vs Mac [message #1791179]

I have two developers jointly working on a project that, among other things, contains some code-generation templates in Xtend. As these devs are students, I have very limited influence over their choice of hardware or OS. One of them uses Windows, the other one uses Mac.
When they share their source code via Git, they keep running into problems with the encoding of guillemots in the Xtend CG templates. The file encoding shows as UTF-8 on both machines, but the problems still exist. In particular, it seems that a guillemot is encoded as one UTF-8 character in Windows, but as two combining characters on the Mac.
As a result, collaboration between them becomes really painful, to put it mildly.
I'm assuming that others have run into this problem before. Has anybody found a good solution how to get the two OSs to play nice with each other with respect to guillemot encoding?
