Divya - I disagree. IE7 handles the XML declaration fine in standards
mode. Although i see it on line 8 when it should always be on line 1.
IMHO IE less than IE7 should always be in quirks mode and the XML
declaration will achieve this.
Jon - I am on linux here at home so no IE running. Will look at it at
work later today but you may already have an answer by then.
