View Full Version : Question About Doctypes

As I understand it, a transitional DTD allows ALL elements, including depreciated ones. So what is the actual purpose of having a strict doctype? I mean, does it carry any advantage and why would I want to use it? Does it do anything that the transitional one can't or is it just for showing off?

Also, if I were wanting to include a JS application in my site, would I need to use an XHTML doctype or would a normal HTML one do?

Finally, is this it for HTML DTDs...?


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

Or is there anything else to it I should know about...?

Thanks.
