    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Ten theme to rule out any theme-specific problems?

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin? Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    thanks esmi for reply
    i have already do that procedures like detective all plug ins and make twenty ten default theme
    actually doesn’t make any thing t solve , i can’t understand what the problem issue ?

    Something is inserting page markup into the top of your RSS feed file.

    if all fails

    try using try switching to atom feed

    it is working all right.

    still not working 🙁 any help

    Did you modify anything to WordPress index.php (not theme)?

    Because </div> appeared in the beginning of every page. To confirm, view source from browser and look before <!DOCTYPE html ...

    It will happen if you call something before get_header() in your theme files. As zeo said </div> comes before <!DOCTYPE html …

    thanks guys
    the problem was from the theme file so i sent it to the designer
    thanks a lot
