And I dont know why a sample of my code is

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

in an html file, you don't need to put an xml declaration before the doctype.

in fact, nothing should come before the doctype - not even whitespace newlines or tabs.
