    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

    http://news.mqassim.com/feed/atom/

    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
