    "InstantBegin template" placement problem

    marydougherty

      Using Dreamweaver CS4, I created a template for my site. When I start a new page using this template, Dreamweaver inserts the "InstantBegin template.." line BEFORE the !DOCTYPE declaration:

       

      <!-- InstanceBegin template="/Templates/main_Template.dwt" codeOutsideHTMLIsLocked="false" --><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "

      http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

       

      <head>

      ...

       

      This causes the page to fall apart when viewed in IE. I've tried using NotePad to move the "InstanceBegin template..." after the DOCTYPE line. This works fine until I open the page in Dreamweaver which moves it back to line 1 of the code.

       

      Any ideas on what's going on...and if it can be fixed? Any help would be appreciated!
