Parse Error with doctype

Posted on 16th Feb 2014 07:03 pm by admin

I'm getting a parse error with this simple code. I don't get it. It worked one time then when I reloaded the page in FF the code throws this parse error.
Parse error: parse error in C:wampwwwbmreader.php on line 7
Line 7 is where the HTML Doctype line begins. Thanks in advance. Here is the code.

Code: [Select]<?php

// This makes sure that the content is sent to the browser as text/html and the UTF-8 character set (since we didn't change it).

// Let's begin our XHTML webpage code. The DOCTYPE is supposed to be the very first thing, so we'll keep it on the same line as the closing-PHP tag.>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.1//EN" "">

<html xmlns="" xml:lang="en">
<title>Sample SimplePie Page</title>
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<style type="text/css">
body {
font:12px/1.4em Verdana, sans-serif;
margin:50px auto;

a {
padding:0 1px;

a:hover {


div.header {
border-bottom:1px solid #999;

div.item {
padding:5px 0;
border-bottom:1px solid #999;
div.image {
border:3px solid blue;


<?php $feed = file_get_contents("");
$xml = new SimpleXmlElement($feed);?>
<?php foreach ($xml->channel->item as $entry){
echo $entry->title;
echo $entry->description;
