I'm starting a new book, for which I have three html files I've done in other editors. Sigil refused to import them, and advised:
The following files were not loaded due to invalid content or not well formed XML
and for each file it says:
line 1: whitespace expected
The first line of each file is a <!Doctype...
I erased the Doctype line and left the first line blank and it loaded them.
Doesn't every html file start with a Doctype?

There is probably something wrong with the DOCTYPE, a space where it doesn't mean to be or something of that order.
There is a selection in preferences for pretty print or Tidy at open or save which you can turn on to import flawed files, and then turn back off after you have brought them in.
The DOCTYPE is the same for all epubs, as far as I know, so you can copy the first part of the epub from a valid one and paste it over the problem stuff.

A HTML file does not have to start with a DOCTYPE. A XHTML file though...
