Default unexpected T_STRING in line 1

I have created a new page, which I expect to eventually have to add some dynamic content to. In anticipation of this, I've given the page a *.php extension. Currently there is no php in the file. I uploaded the file to the server, and when I visit the page, I get an error stating "Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/content/O/p/e/OpeningDoors05/html/fraud-alert-en.php on line 1"

I haven't been able to figure out what this error means exactly, but after reading several posts by others with similar messages, it seems to frequently occur when people have unbalanced quotes. I'm reasonably certain that my quotes are balanced, and the document is valid XHTML.

What I've found is that if I convert it over to HTML 4.01 with Tidy, and get rid of my <?xml line it works--the server shows the page. Does php not like XHTML with the ?xml at the top?
