Unnecessary styles above DOCTYPE breaking layout

  1. I have recently installed a wordpress blog at

    When you directly type this URL: and when the page opens, if you see the source code it is like

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" ""><br /> <html xmlns=""></p> <p><head profile=""><br /> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

    However, if you click on anywhere on this blog and review the source code again, you will see it changes to

    <style>#fbku {position:absolute;overflow:auto;height:0;width:0;}</style><font id="fbku"><b></b><br /> </font></p> <p><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" ""><br /> <html xmlns="">

    I have tried to remove this in frontpage to test and everything works perfect, so the problem is this <style> code appears above, can you please help me figure out how to remove this

    <style>#fbku {position:absolute;overflow:auto;height:0;width:0;}</style><font id="fbku"><b></b><br /> </font>

    I want to know how can I have this removed from my header.php

  3. The extra style code could be something in the theme or it also could be coming from a plugin. One way to find out if a plugin is the source of the trouble would be to disable all plugins temporarily and check to see if the problem is still happening. If it isn't, turn each plugin back on one at a time until the problem comes back and then that's your culprit.
