Validating Error [63]: "character data is not allowed here"

i'm getting this error with validating the url www.madra.net.

if you look at the validator result -


and inspect the source code, you'll see that the error is generated  
by an empty line.  thinking that i may have a non-ascii character  
messing up the document, i've run bbedit's "zap gremlins" function on  
the code, as well as creating the documents afresh, and each time the  
same error.

the page structure is...

< includes "header.php"
which itself..
<includes "metatags.php".

the error is either being generated as the last  line of the  
"metatags.php" file or the line immeadiately following the "include 
("path to/metatags.php");" line in the "header.php" file.  as said  
above, all files have been checked for non-ascii characters and  
created afresh but validator still sees something [???] in the code  
at that point every time.
