Hi Dino,

what exactly is your question about the doctype?

About Richards post: use caps for the doctype, like so:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>Title of the document</title>
    </head>

    <body>
        The content of the document......
    </body>

</html>
<!doctype html>
<html>
    <head>
    </head>
    <body>
    </body>
</html>
