page will not validate without errors

Hi,
I have been trying to validate an xhtml 1.0
transitional page with the W3C Markup Validater.
After making all corrections and validating the
css, the validater still says the page is not
valid but it returns no errors.
The WDG validater returns the following.
I don't understand what this means.

* Line 116, character 8:

</html>
^

Error: entity end not allowed in processing
instruction
* Line 116, character 8:

</html>
^

Error: end of document in prolog

thanks

It means that the validator's parser reached end-of-file while still
accumulating the content of a processing instruction.

The "prolog" is everything (such as the doctype declaration) that comes
before the first starttag (in this case, "<html>").

Somewhere towards the beginning of the file, you have started a
processing instruction with the sequence "<?", *without* ending it with
the sequence "?>".

My guess is that you have a malformed xml declaration.

I think you may be on to something there.. the xml
is...

<?xml version="1.0">

The xml declaration was the problem.
corrected to...
<?xml version="1.0"?>

Page validated.
thank you so much.

btw, the page is...
serena.homedns.org/xhtml1.0.html
