@Anubis – Oh that thing needs so much work—not to mention it being out of date. I’m always exhausted by the time I’m able to work on it. I have a redesign coming out shortly. Thanks though. :)

Read that link that iPad references. It was written over a year ago by John, but it explains everything nicely.

Thanks for the info, all the best.

If you can, I recommend using: <!DOCTYPE html SYSTEM >

Ummm… isn’t that the html5 doctype. Isn’t this a little early to use since IE is the slow kid in class?

Ah, I just posted a thread on HTML5 . I think I might start using it over XHTML 1 .0 Strict (which would be my first choice, in regards to this thread’s question).

XHTML 1 .0 Strict, 4.01 Strict, HTML 5 doctype….they’ll all work just fine.

Indeed they do. And typically customers couldn’t care less about the doctype of a template…

The answer is in the Wordpress site, http://codex.wordpress.org/HTML_to_XHTML

they recommended <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC ”-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1 .0 Strict//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd”>
