I am very new to this, so sorry if its a silly question. I have a php page with nothing but php for validating and sending email. I have included the actual html with a php include. I thought it was best to leave out all the html on a page that is just php. I am getting 3 errors when I try to validate the page:

end of document in prolog [XHTML 1.0 Transitional]
DOCTYPE Override in effect! [XHTML 1.0 Transitional]
No Character encoding declared at document level [XHTML 1.0 Transitional]

What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

I think you'll need to post the page and include code, or provide a link so we can take a look.

The code would be nice to see what you have up top. But these have more the ring of warnings and not errors.
