No <?xml = ie Crash nitsuj msg:3122677 10:46 am on Oct 16, 2006 (gmt 0) I have a really odd problem. The start of my pages have always been:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
My problem is when I do not add the add <?xml ... I.E. displaies the page incorectly and then crashes!
Does anyone know what <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?> Does. and why it crashes my browser when I don't have it?

That line is a xml declaration and cannot be used with IE. IE chokes on it and goes into quirks mode. Only modern browsers handle it properly. However, why IE crashes when you remove it does not make sense.
