What are you using to process the page? IE?

I tried WDG HTML Validator and it says no errors. I'm not sure why one page says different.

My guess is there are extra bytes added by whatever application was originally used to edit it. Some apps can handle it, others can't. If you can delete this prolog using some other app, it will probably work.
