I have an error on website with html placed where it is not supposed to be according to W3C. Here is the issue:

<!doctype html>
<html xmlns:og="http://opengraphprotocol.org/schema/" xmlns:fb="http://www.facebook.com/2008/fbml" lang="en-US"  >

which is above my <head> right on top of every web page ..... I have no idea how to get rid of it...... any suggestions????? 

Squarespace doe not give me access to the back-end editing of this issue.....

The structure in the screenshot is correct. The <html> element is the top-level element of an HTML document and should contain all other elements including the <head> and <body> elements.

However, you shouldn't need to worry about technical details like this when building a site on Squarespace, which is why you cannot edit these details.

I have this same issue and my website auditor keeps saying that it's a problem because http instead of https is making my site look unsecure. How did the below get on top of every page on my site and more importantly, how do I get rid of it?
