Hey there, neat template.
But Windows 8 apps fail certification. There are 2 failures, both related to styles.js

Bytecode generation

•Error Found: The bytecode generation test detected the following errors:◦File \?\C:\Program Files\WindowsApps*\template\js\styles.js has JavaScript syntax or other problems.




UTF-8 file encoding

•Error Found: The UTF-8 file encoding test detected the following errors:◦File C:\Program Files\WindowsApps*
\template\js\styles.js is not properly UTF-8 encoded. Re-save the file as UTF-8 (including Byte Order Mark).

And the solution is to used 'save as' on the file, use advanced options and set the encoding at the time.

Brilliantly described here:

Thanks for posting. The file has been re-encoded and is in the 1.0.3 release. You don't need to download the new release if you don't want to, you can just open the file, and do a "save as", from there you can choose the encoding (UTF-8) from the dropdown beside the save button.
