maybe better yet, match the first non-empty line?

As far as I know, valid HTML has to have a DOCTYPE delcaration,
otherwise it is left up to the intelligent web browser to guess. 
And... I think most people would agree it is a good idea to have the
doctype as your first line, with no blank lines above.  Even if you
want to initialize some script stuff (i.e. PHP) it should go in a
<?php ?> block after the doctype, IMHO.

Especially seeing as all XHTML 1.1
