DTD not detected? - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

    Default DTD not detected?

    Hi,

    My DTD is: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN">
    It appears Dreamweaver 8 doesn't recognise this DTD. Why not?
    The w3.org html validator recognises the DTD and considers it valid HTML.

    It's not a complete doctype - it needs the URI part, too. IE6 will enter
    quirks mode when it sees it.

    According to [url]http://gutfeldt.ch/matthias/articles/doctypeswitch/table.html[/url] an URI is only required for Frameset and Transitional versions, which I'm not using.

    They are wrong.

    IE will render the page in Quirks mode unless the URI is present.

    Is there a way to check whether IE is using quirks mode?

    Even [url]http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnie60/html/cssenhancements.asp[/url] says IE won't use quirks mode.

    I see what you are saying. Sorry for the confusion. It seems to be DW that
    is confused.

    What is it you are seeing DW do with that doctype that it shouldn't do?
