xml definition problem on some web server

Dear W3C,
This is some feedback to XHTML 1.0 documentation posted at:
I developed a couple of website with the following top of the pages
according to the documentation:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html 
                        PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
After uploading this pages to my web host provider and trying to load
the first page I got the following error:
            Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING in
/home/aschmid/edogo-www/members/andreas/andreas.html on line 1
After some checking I realized that my HTTP sever must not understand
the first line xml directive and outputs an error. To make this work the
xml has to put as a comment into the document as follows:
            <!--?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?-->
Then everything is fine and works. Also the directive is taken into
consideration. I noticed, because without that some of my javascript
wouldn't execute properly.
Just wanted to bring this up and you might want to add a comment on this
to your documentation.
