This is just a bug.  For this reason the <? line has been made optional as I
understand it from www.w3.org

The DOCTYPE statement still serves as a statement of intent.

I think that you probably don't have an <html> tag.

If you don't it will render it as straight XML instead of XHTML.

However if you don't have an <?xml tag, the browser assumes html.
