Like Ged said, check out your <% %>, but also if you want to kill
leading white space globally, you might post process your output
in your global.asa with Script_OnFlush:

sub Script_OnFlush {
   my $out_ref = $Response->{BinaryRef};
   $$out_ref =~ s/^\s+(\<\?xml)/$1/s

Then set PerlSetVar BufferingOn 1 so that flush will only be called
once per script.
