Is there a way to escape server-generated code?
Two of my clients' servers generate code that invalidates rendering

I've tailored my code to validate in both HTML and CSS, to have acceptable semantics, and to be mobile-ready.

The server for one of my clients displays his pages within a frame (transient doctype). (Viewing the source for the client's pages doesn't even reveal the code I've constructed!) The other client's server appends non-validating javascript after the closing < / html >.

In addition to the problems I've had controlling page rendering, it's my impression that these can affect pagerank. Is there an acceptable way to bypass server-inserted code? (Is it, simply, a matter of finding a different host?) I would surely appreciate your advice.

You need to find a different host IMO or upgrade your hosting. The only experience I've had with hosts injecting code like that is on cheapo/free services where they will inject ads in the page. Difficult to remove (you can't remove it completely) and would probably break T&Cs.

A framed site gives the impression you are using "free" hosting that comes as part of an ISP contract. You can view the source if you view the "frames" source.
