This is a normal header for XHTML files, since XHTML is an XML  
application. According to the specification, the first line can only  
be dropped if you use the default XML character encoding, viz. UTF-8.

Incidentally, I had to drop that line as well from some of my pages,  
since IE patches up some of its bugs in the presence of a DOCTYPE  
line with a STRICT type...but that only works if the DOCTYPE is the  
_first_ line of the file ;-).
