Problems with Word Docx ContentType

I have the following code:

DocumentTemplate doc = adminService.getDocumentById(params.id?.toLong())
byte[] responseData = adminService.convertDocxBytesToModel(doc.contentType, doc.data);

String myContentType = doc.getContentType()
println "myContentType: " + myContentType

int myContentSize = responseData.size()
println "myContentSize: " + myContentSize

response.contentType = myContentType
response.contentLength = myContentSize

response.outputStream << responseData

myContentSize shows as 45758
myContentType is reported as "application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document"

The file downloads as a *.docx file, but something is not right with it. If I open the file in Word and save-as, it’s fine. But without doing the save-as step, it’s not a valid word (xml) file.

Is there something else I need to set besides the content type? And is that content type wrong?

Thanks for any help,

Problem was the Byte-Order Mark. I had to do some wonky stuff to make it right.
