At the top of an HTML file source, you may see some code that indicates the version of HTML that is going to be used.


The O'Reilly has a discussion:
DOCTYPE Explained.

"There are three variants on HTML 4.01, for example:
  • HTML 4.01 Strict, which describes the structural portions of HTML 4.01 and does not provide any frame-related markup.
  • HTML 4.01 Transitional, which includes the presentational markup such as >B< and >FONT<, but does not include frame-related markup.
  • HTML 4.01 Frameset, which is the same as HTML 4.01 Transitional except that it adds a description of frame-related markup."
From Thomas Brunt's Editing the FP 2003 Default Template
"I've heard some folks complaining that FrontPage doesn't include a doctype declaration when you create a new page. If that's a problem for you then why not just edit the default template? That's the file that FP copies every time you create a new blank page. Here's the location of the file. Change it you like. C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Templates\1033\Pages11\normal.tem\normal.htm FP 2003 gives you a choice of doctypes to enter somewhat automatically, however. You can edit what's available and add your own stuff too."
