    it seems every time i turn around, my feed stops validating. lasst time it was the favatars plugin. this time, i haven't installed any plugins. the last thing i did was edit my comment form.
    anyway, the error:

    when you view the source of the blog itself, the XHTML DTD is pushed over by one space as well:

    any ideas?

    Check all your plugins and look for one with a space at the very beginning or end of the plugin. That's the most likely cause.

    i've disabled all plugins and still come up invalid. as i said, no plugins have changed since the last time i was valid.
    are there any other files that load at the beginning of the feed?

    Yes, lots and lots of files load. Enumerating them all would be difficult, at best.

    If your plugins aren't the problem, then you can start by looking at wp-blog-header.php and wp-config.php. Might be one of those. Failing those, start looking at every php file in the root directory and in wp-includes. If any of them have a space right before the opening <?php, then that's probably it.
