All my <head> content is being rendered/outputted on <body>

So this is my first post! I've just created the account, but I always check on here to solve my problems. I've found others with the same problem but the solutions haven't been working for me.

So I have on the .PHP file all the content correctly placed on the head tag but for some reason it is going into the body tag leaving my first one empty.. And it adds a strange "

" (text space) on the beginning of the body. What could it be?

<meta charset="utf-8">
<title><?php bloginfo('name'); ?> <?php if ( is_single() ) { ?> <?php } ?> <?php wp_title(); ?></title>
<meta name="generator" content="WordPress <?php bloginfo('version'); ?>">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>" type="text/css" media="screen">
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0" href="<?php bloginfo('rss2_url'); ?>">
<link rel="alternate" type="text/xml" title="RSS .92" href="<?php bloginfo('rss_url'); ?>">
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Atom 0.3" href="<?php bloginfo('atom_url'); ?>">
<link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>">


This is most likely caused by an error introducing some text content into the head area.

It is very hard to identify where that is given the PHP instead of the generated HTML, but a validator should pick it up.

Easy Solution

  1. Open your head containing file with Notepad++
  2. Click on encoding, select Encode in UTF-8 Without BOM It fixes the issue.
