Locked email format broken?

By secretslies-post ·
For the past few months, at least, the format of the Web Development Zone newsletter from has included the following lines:

Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1

<?xml version="1.0" encoding=3D"UTF-8"?>
<html xmlns:tr=3D""><head><title>Why Web developers shouldn't ignore older technologies</title></head><body marginheight="5" topmargin="5" text="#000000" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"><style type="text/css">

When I open this HTML email in my HTML reader, Firefox on Linux, Firefox rightly blows up with the following:

XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Location: file:///tmp/emm.13300Kx/mm.1330mUA
Line Number 28, Column 36: </style><center><TABLE align=center cellpadding=
1 cellspacing=0 border=0 width=610>

(The carat points to the align=center attribute, which is not well-formed.)

This is incredibly lame, that a technical newsletter about standards-based development is emitting broken code.

What does it take to remove that XML processing directive as the first line?

Best regards,
