Page shows code instead of formatted text and images

Good afternoon expert,

Created an html page to help sell my house.
http://www.allenpitts.com/7147/7147_Flyer.html

Got several calls from prospective buyers saying:
'The page display as html code.'
When I tested at my computer (IE 9) it works fine.
But using Firefox it displays code and so also on the
iPhone.

I tried using HTM in instead of html and removed

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

No luck, I surmise that the browser, when it display code,  
thinks the file is text instead of html code but not sure how
to get it to display.

9apit--Your site opens fine on my IE9.  I suspect those with a problem are using another browser.  I do not code pages, but maybe this site can help.
