Web interface of Icecast 2.5.

This is because the xsl transform inserts it there, try changing the 
xsl:output to look like the following:
(Most important is that the method is html there.)

<xsl:output method="html" doctype-public="-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 
indent="yes" encoding="UTF-8" />

Please let me know if this fixes the problem!
