Firefox generates extra left angle bracket

P: n/a
I have created a site that uses a Doctype of XHTML Transitional and a
character set of utf-8, in case any of this matters. I have validated
every page and cleaned up all errors. IE displays the pages fine but
Firefox 3 puts a stray left angle bracket at the lower left corner of
every page.

I have used my dev tool to search my code for extra brackets and found
nothing I have run out of options for what to analyze. Any suggestions
of what is causing this?

You have an extra ">" somewhere. Who can tell without a URL.

Take care,

Unless you post this to alt.web.psychic, you can count on having to let
people see your page if you expect them to be able to help find the
source of the problem.

Did you validate the page on http://validator.w3.org/
- it should find the odd bracket for you.

Do you use javascript or other code that needs escape characters?

Is this an argument against it. In Australia there is/was an ad for
Mortein, a pesticide household spray in a can, the byline for the
product was always "When you are on to a good thing, stick to it!"

We were dealing with a closet in town hall and I thought I saw an old
twisted up cable, so I kicked it out of the dark: it was a snake caught
on a sticky 'mouse and snake' trap!
