Weird Characters Appear Only In Firefox

Recommended Posts

I am getting some odd characters appearing in the beggining of an include when rendered in firefox (v 1.5x on XP Pro). The characters are: 

These are not appearing in IE6

Any ideas on what is causing this?

The include line:
include_once ('rootdir/filedir/filename.php');

This is not occuring for other included files. This is the last include on the page.

Include file source:
<div id="footer">
        <div id="submenu">
        <li><a href="registry.php" <?php if ($thisPage=="Registry") echo " class='active' "; ?>title="Home">Registry</a></li>
        <li> - <a href="pictures.php" <?php if ($thisPage=="Pictures") echo " class='active' "; ?>title="Pictures">Pictures</a></li>
        <li> - <a href="contact.php" <?php if ($thisPage=="Contact") echo " class='active' "; ?>title="Contact Us">Contact us</a></li>
        <span class="clearfix"> </span>
<script type="text/javascript">

if(typeof sIFR == "function"){

<script src="http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js" type="text/javascript">
<script type="text/javascript">
_uacct = "accountcode";


Any ideas?
