Simple

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="" xml:lang="">
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8" />
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, user-scalable=yes" />
  <title>This is a page</title>
  <link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet">
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

The DOCTYPE is important to specify. When it's missing, many browsers (Internet Explorer in particular) will format the using "quirks mode" -- or using exceptions to modern CSS rules to support the historical (and deprecated) behavior of web browsers.

NB: When using in PHP, the character set cannot be set with the <?xml> tag -- as this kind of tag conflicts with the PHP parser.

Scripting & CSS

Example with placeholders for Javascript and CSS Stylesheets (both inline and external).

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
<head>
<title>untitled</title>
<!-- external style sheet -->
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="styles.css" /> 
<!-- external javascript -->
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="prototype.js">
</script>
<!-- inline stylesheet -->
<style type="text/css">
body {
	font-family: Arial,Verdana,Helvetica,sans-serif;
}
</style>
<!-- inline javascript -->
<script type="text/javascript">
	function init() {
 			alert("javascript says hello as well");
	}
</script>
</head>

<!-- body with javascript hook (call function when page is finished loading -->
<body onload="init()">
<p style="font-size: 14px">Hello</p>
</body>

</html>
