I have recently purchased a ready made site as I am new to all things HTML CSS etc (although I am learning fast). Every time I have tried to go to the page I get this msg Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/a4616062/public_html/index.html on line 1. Here is the line in question <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?> Anyone give me the heads up please.

Can you copy and page the code so we can have a look. T_String error is usually a missing delimiter or closing tag. I would need to see the code.

I keep trying but even this post won't accept it maybe if I post just a little snippet of it, it might let me.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>

Are you using php to display any of the code? Or are you only using html files?

Try commenting out this line: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
