Technical Advisory Service
2001 - 2004 archive
Compliance corner comprises a series of issues that have arisen in the context of projects meeting technical standards. This page covers:
Every HTML or XHTML page on your website has to carry a statement
called a document type declaration, or DOCTYPE, if it is to be correctly validated.
Such DOCTYPE declarations are needed to ensure that browsers pointed at each
(X)HTML page correctly interpret the mark-up it contains, i.e. the 'flavour'
of HTML or XHTML being used. Without a DOCTYPE declaration, your pages may not
be correctly displayed by a sufficiently wide range of browsers.
